Abstract:

A transducer has been developed which measures the product of electrical conductivity and velocity s,u of conducting gases flowing along its axis. The instrument was calibrated by moving aluminum or graphite rods through the transducer. By using thin-wall, stainless steel tubing, the influence function for the transducer was also obtained. Tests were run on two different arc plasma jet facilities. Values of s, u ranged from 0.02 to 9 megamhos per second. Author
