Abstract

This paper presents a numerical simulation of temperature and flow fields in the discharge and near outlet regions of the hybrid argon-water-stabilized electric arc. The calculations for an argon mass flow rate of 0.450 g · s-1reveal the transition from a transonic plasma flow for 400 A to a supersonic one for 600 A with the maximum Mach number of 1.57. The comparison with available experimental data for 400 A shows satisfactory agreement.
