The thermodynamic properties of tungsten have been evaluated to 6200 K. Selected values include an enthalpy of sublimation of 855 ± 5 kJ/mol at 298.15 K and a boiling point at one atmosphere pressure
Calculation of the expansion dynamics of evaporated tungsten under the action of a laser pulse
The paper is devoted to the numerical implementation of a model of the dynamics of the tungsten vapors flow evaporating from the sample surface. To calculate the speed and mass flow rate of the
Theoretical simulation of the closed currents near non-uniformly strongly heated surface of tungsten due to thermo-emf
A problem of surface melting under the impact of plasmas is one of the most important in the development of future magnetic confinement fusion reactors. The expected high heat loads can lead to
Advanced Modeling of Plasma-Cathode Interaction in Vacuum and Low-Pressure Arcs
A detailed model has been developed for modeling of arc plasma-cathode interaction, which takes into account a pre-existing plasma cloud, the interaction of the metal vapor plasma produced in the
Numerical investigation of AC arc ignition on cold electrodes in atmospheric-pressure argon
Since experiments cannot clarify the mechanism of current transfer to non-thermionic arc cathodes, this can only be done by means of numerical modelling based on first principles and not relying on a
Self-consistent description of the replacement current driving melt layer motion in fusion devices
The bulk replacement current density triggered by surface charge loss owing to thermionic emission leads to a volumetric Lorentz force which has been observed to drive macroscopic melt layer motion
Influence of hydrogen trapping on WCLL breeding blanket performances
Tritium transport simulations in water-cooled lithium lead (WCLL) breeding blankets have been performed with FESTIM. Fluid dynamics and heat transfer were coupled to evaluate how temperature and LiPb
Simulating changes in shape of thermionic cathodes during operation of high-pressure arc discharges
A numerical model of current transfer to thermionic cathodes of high-pressure arc discharges is developed with account of deviations from local thermodynamic equilibrium occurring near the cathode
