By measuring the axial profiles of thermal wall loading and radiation output in a dc vortex‐stabilized arc, it has been shown that the vortex significantly influences the energy transport in the arc. The arc was operated at 225 A in an argon vortex at a pressure of 5.5 atm. The measurements show that there is a rapid onset of thermal wall loading immediately adjacent to the upstream electrode. Furthermore, there is a significant amount of thermal wall loading upstream of the arc column, which… CONTINUE READING
