A standard magnetohydrodynamic code, MACH2 , is modified in 1-D to account for two-fluid behavior, to include the effects of a finite-electric field during the formation of a driven, field-reversed configuration (FRC).

We simulate a field-reversed configuration (FRC), produced by an “inductively driven” FRC experiment; comprised of a central-flux coil and exterior-limiter coil. To account for the plasma kinetic behavior, a standard 2-dimensional magneto-hydrodynamic code is modified to preserve the azimuthal, two-fluid behavior.
