We present preliminary results of some simulations for a plasma ion acceleration system, which we plan to construct. This system tires to model the complex interactions between the multiple species of ions (about 5) used as the medium for particle acceleration. By modeling the ion species as fluids with the use of the well known magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) equations, Mac Cormack’s method, a numerical technique commonly used in fluid dynamics simulations can be utilized.
