Nature of problem:
TRIP 1 has been constructed to follow the time-depentent ionisation and recombination processes in a plasma of any density. The program can be used by itself or together with hydrodynamic codes in any dimension.
To estimate the degree of ionisation in the plasma, we solve for the mean and mean square ionisation levels <z> and <z**2>. In general these are functions of electron density, temperature and time. Subsidiary variables are the radiation rates, internal energy, etc.
In the present version of TRIP 1 we allow only for a single element plasma. The radiation transfer problem is avoided by assuming the plasma to be optically thin. Only the ground state population densities are considered and analytic expressions are used for the rate coefficients.
On the IBM 360/145 at Karlsruhe 100 timesteps with no iterations per timestep take 0.25 s.
