The aim of this work is complex investigations of interaction between electric arc discharge plasma and Cu-Mo composite electrodes’ working surface. The destructions of working layer of such electrodes, caused by discharge plasma influence, were studied. The mutual correlation of plasma properties and destruction behavior of electrodes surface was found.
