The relation between the voltage and the arc length in gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is an important characteristic. It depends on a complex distribution of the electric conductivity along the current path and does not depend on the arc length only. Based on electric measurements and the arc length determination from high-speed arc images, a simplified electrical model is introduced for a pulsed GMAW process. It shows the relation of voltage, current, arc length and free wire length and considers also their temporal evolution during the process in particular during the high-current phase.
The plasma parameters of a large-area dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) in argon-HMDSO mixtures containing up to about 1600 ppm of the monomer are investigated by means of numerical modelling. A time-dependent,
spatially one-dimensional fluid model is applied, taking into account the spatial variation of the discharge plasma between plane-parallel dielectrics covering the electrodes. The dataset contains values of power dissipated in the DBD as well as the space- and period-averaged density and mean energy of the electrons as a function of HMDSO admixture.
The HelixJet (https://www.inptdat.de/helixjet) was applied to simultaneous melting and plasma treatment of polyamide (PA 12) microparticles (diameter 60 µm) used conventionally for 3D printing by laser sintering. This proof-of-principle experiment demonstrated that gaussian thickness profiles of PA 12 can be printed using the HelixJet with a rapid rate of 200 mg/s (peak growth 2 mm/s) and with advantageous material properties. The key element of this novel process is the self-regulated balance between material melting and plasma quenching.
The dataset contains data from comparative studies of capacitively coupled radio-frequency (CCRF) discharges in helium and argon at pressures between 10 and 80 Pa applying two different fluid modeling approaches as well as two independently developed particle-in-cell Monte Carlo collision (PIC-MCC) codes. The dataset provides a test bed for future studies of simple ccrf discharge configurations in helium and argon at pressures ranging from 10 to 80 Pa.
The self-organized behaviour (locked mode) of filaments in the non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma jet (ntAPPJ) couples a spatial patterning of the discharge (helical symmetry) and a regular motion (steady rotation). The dataset represents the mean rotation frequency of filaments in the capillary with a diameter of 4 mm and the corresponding geometric characteristics: helicality and/or filament inclination angles were measured along with the gas temperature under varying discharge conditions (electric power and argon flow rate).
