Various sample geometries are proposed for future arc-jet experiments that are intended to physically capture spalled particles to more accurately analyze their size and shape. These samples were modeled using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver and a spallation particle-tracking code to determine which geometry can best capture spalled particles ejected from the sample surface.
