Abstract:

The author explains briefly the theoretical fundamentals of this phenomenon and discusses in detail its basic regularities, the additivity law, the relation between erosion volume and spark energy, the relation between erosion volume and thermal constants of metals, the polarity of electric erosion and its relation to pulse duration. He reports results of experimental investigation of the formation of spots and indentations on electrode surfaces caused by single pulse discharge. Author
