A simple model for flashboard plasma expansion is presented. It is based on the j × B force and the fact that only a fraction a of the total current flows through the expanding plasma. For the parameters under consideration, maximum velocities are roughly proportional to a and reach 70 cm/¿s for ¿ = 1. B-field profiles from the model are compared with experiment.
