Site "Interaction of HighPressure Arc Plasmas with Thermionic Cathodes" THERMCAT A fast and robust online tool for simulation of different modes of axially symmetric current transfer from highpressure arcdischarge plasmas to cylindrical thermionic cathodes, created and maintained by Mikhail Benilov and coworkers. The code computes both the diffuse mode of current transfer and modes with axially symmetric spots and can be used in a wide range of arc currents, plasmaproducing gases, and cathode materials and dimensions. The tool also serves as a tutorial that can help to make physicists and engineers working in the field comfortable with multiple solutions describing different modes of current transfer to electrodes in lowtemperature plasmas. ELEM A code for evaluation of the mobility and temperature of ions in a weakly ionized gas as functions of reduced electric field and gas temperature. The code is based on the twotemperature displaceddistribution theory; see P. G. C. Almeida, M. S. Benilov, and G. V. Naidis, J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 35, No. 13, pp. 15771584 (2002). NCPL A code for calculation of parameters of nonequilibrium nearcathode plasma layer in highpressure arc plasmas. In particular, the code computes tables of the functions q(Tw,U), j(Tw,U), and p_pl(Tw,U), which serve as boundary conditions for the 2T or LTE equations describing the arc bulk. The code is based on the model summarized in M. S. Benilov, M. D. Cunha, and G. V. Naidis, Plasma Sources Sci. Technol. 14, 517 (2005). TRATPL A code for approximate evaluation of transport coefficients of nonequilibrium atomic plasmas with singly charges ions. The code is based on the formulas from N. A. Almeida, M. S. Benilov, and G. V. Naidis, J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys., vol. 41, no. 24, pp. 245201, 2008 (http://stacks.iop.org/00223727/41/245201) and D. F. N. Santos, M. Lisnyak, and M. S.
