Abstract:

An investigation and generalization are made of the volt ampere characteristics and thermal efficiency of a dc electric arc heater in a vortex layout with a power of 300 kW with a mixing chamber and lateral discharge of the untwisted jet. The heater operates in the area of ascending volt ampere characteristics. The installation which was developed was used for investigating processes of turbulent heat exchange and resistance in high-temperature flows of argon, nitrogen, and air. Russian translations.
