Title of program: SSARC Catalogue Id: ABBI_v1_0 Nature of problem The self-similar electrical arc is a cylindrically symmetric arc burning in a longitudinal flow of gas with axial pressure gradient varying linearly in the axial direction. The code SSARC described below finds the steady and transient solutions of a high pressure self- similar arc. The arcing medium is nitrogen.
