Title of program: SPARK2D Catalogue Id: ABUD_v2_0 [ABUU] Nature of problem SPARK2 computes the axial and radial development of an axially symmetric electrical discharge between plane parallel electrodes. The processes incorporated are primary ionization, attachment, detachment, secondary cathode emission due to the incidence of photons and positive ions, space-charge distortion of the applied field and the properties of the external electrical circuit. SPARK2 is a two-dimensional extension of SPARK71. It is complementary to and not a replacement for this program.
