Radiation Transfer in Arc Plasmas

N. Bogatyreva, M. Bartlová, V. Aubrecht, P. Kloc


In this paper, attention has been given to the absorption properties of the arc plasma at the different pressure conditions. Calculations of the absorption coefficients for a thermal plasma have been performed as a function of the temperature and the frequency. Methods for prediction of the average absorption coefficients were described and compared in detail.
