Modelling and experimental evidence of the cathode erosion in a plasma spray torch

The lifetime of tungsten cathodes used in plasma spray torches is limited by processes leading to a loss of cathode material. It was reported in the literature that the mechanism of their erosion is the evaporation. A model of the ionization layer of a cathode is developed to study the diffusive transport of evaporated tungsten atoms and tungsten ions produced due to ionization by electron impact in a background argon plasma.

Extended reaction kinetics model for non-thermal argon plasmas and its test against experimental data - dataset

Modelling results obtained using an extended reaction kinetics model (RKM) suitable for the analysis of weakly ionised, non-thermal argon plasmas with gas temperatures around 300K at sub-atmospheric and atmospheric pressures are presented. Modelling was performed by means of a time- and space-dependent fluid model for two different dielectric barrier discharge configurations as well as for a micro-scaled atmospheric-pressure plasma jet setup. The results are also compared with measurements, as well as with modelling data obtained by use of a previously established 15-species RKM.

Effect of a spatially fluctuating heating of particles in a plasma spray process - Dataset

The work is concerned with the effect of a spatially fluctuating heating of Al_2O_3 particles with diameters of 5–120 μm during a plasma spray process. A plasma jet is generated in a mixture of Ar (40 NLPM) and H_2 (14 NLPM) and in pure Ar at an electric current of 600 A. The tracing of the injected particles in the plume region of the plasma jets is considered in the framework of a three-dimensional model taking into account a turbulent fluid flow.

Spatial distribution of HO₂ in an atmospheric pressure plasma jet investigated by cavity ring-down spectroscopy - dataset

The data set comprises full cavity ring-down spectra and absorption coefficients obtained from on-off-resonance measurements, in order to determine the spatial distribution of HO₂ in the cold atmospheric pressure plasma jet kINPen-sci. Therefore, the plasma jet was operated with 3 slm Ar and 3000 ppm water, and was equipped with a gas curtain of 5 slm O₂. To determine the effective absorption length, the HO₂ absorption was measured in radial direction. These radial fits had a Gaussian-like shape.

Self-consistent Cathode-Plasma Coupling and Role of the Fluid Flow Approach in Torch Modelling - Dataset

The data set is related to a two-dimensional and stationary magneto-hydrodynamic model of a plasma spray torch operated with argon, which is developed to predict the plasma properties in a steady operating mode. The model couples a submodel of a refractory cathode and its non-equilibrium boundary layer to a submodel of the plasma in local thermodynamic equilibrium in a self-consistent manner. The Navier-Stokes equations for a laminar and compressible flow are solved in terms of low- and high-Mach number numerical approaches.

The effect of oxygen admixture on the properties of microwave generated plasma in Ar-O₂ : a modelling study - dataset

This work presents the datasets of the results of a self-consistent modelling analysis on microwave plasma generated in Ar-O₂ mixtures at a frequency of 2.45 GHz at atmospheric pressure. The study focuses on how the plasma properties are in uenced by the increase of the oxygen fraction in the gas mixture. The oxygen admixture is increased from 1 up to 95 % in mass for values of the input microwave power of 1 and 1.5 kW.

Ar metastable densities (³P₂) in the effluent of a filamentary atmospheric pressure plasma jet with humidified feed gas - dataset

The Ar(³P₂) metastable density in the effluent of the cold atmospheric pressure plasma jet kINPen-sci was investigated as a function of the feed gas humidity, the gas curtain composition, and the distance from the nozzle by means of laser atomic absorption spectroscopy. The data set comprises the axial distributions of the Ar metastables as a function of these parameters.

Influence of surface parameters on dielectric-barrier discharges in argon at subatmospheric pressure - dataset

The provided data describe the discharge current in DBD obtained by fluid modelling using different values of for the secondary electron emission coefficient γ and and the relative permittivity of the dielectric barrier εr in comparison with the measured current at a pressure of 100 mbar and an applied voltage amplitude of 1.8 kV. Furthermore, the dissipated power obtained by model calculations for different values of γ and εr together with the measured power in dependence on the pressure is given.
