Abstract:

A numerical model for the turbulent flow of argon in an arc has been solved for both water-cooled and transpiration-cooled configurations. Although the agreement with data obtained for a 1 cm diameter water-cooled arc is good, there is poor agreement with measured results for the transpiration-cooled arc. For the transpiration-cooled arc, the data is better corroborated by a laminar flow model. Turbulent flow parametric calculations have been performed for a large 2.54 cm diameter water-cooled arc.
