Calculating the Temperature of Electrodes in Gas-Tungsten-Arcs(Physics, Processes, Instruments & Measurements)
Search this Article
A mathematical model of a tungsten electrode during arc discharge, which included the physical link between the tip of electrode and the arc plasma, was constructed, and the temperature distributions of the electrode were expressed numerically. The calculated results showed good agreement with observed ones concerning the temperature gradient. Furthermore, it is suggested that the usefulness of numerical experiments with this model for theoretical analysis is high and can replace experimental measurements.
