Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper presents the results of analyses of the transient resistance and inductance of spark plasma, parameters which have been obtained using the hydrodynamic approach described in [2], and a new model for plasma resistance. A lumped RLC model to represent the transient process in the spark-discharge plasma has been built and solved using PSpice simulation software. The dynamic plasma resistance, R(t), and inductance, L(t), have been used in the lumped-element circuit.
