Paper Abstract

The steady, non-equilibrium, two temperatures model for argon plasma flow is developed. This model is based on the numerical solution of mass, energy and momentum conservation equations using a finite difference method. The modelling results of plasma torch with cylindrical anode of 4 mm diameter and 40 mm length are presented. It operates at atmospheric pressure, 3 slm argon flow rate and 70 A DC.
