Abstract : The aim of this contribution is to propose an analytical model to describe dc plasma torch properpties at the nozzle exit from experimental data. This simplified approach attempts to highlight the influence of experimental parameters on plasma jet velocity and pressure contributions. The plasma inside the anode-nozzle is considered as stationary and is divided into the arc column and a surrounding cold layer which electrically insulates the plasma from the nozzle wall. Heat conduction is evaluated by using Kirchoff-s potential, which is described, as it is done also for the electrical conductivity, as a function of the gas specific enthalpy instead of temperature.

Keywords : dc plasma torch pressure measurements plasma velocity isentropic exponent
