Abstract

Modeling of TiC powder behavior in Ar-H2 and Ar-N2 RF thermal plasmas has been performed as well as the numerical analysis of the plasma fields to investigate the plasma/powders interaction. The heat transfer rate from the plasma to the powders decreases with increasing the powder feed rate and with decreasing the plasma pressure, because of the significant local cooling owing to the presence of the injected powders. These results agree fairly well with the experimental results of our following paper. The modeling herein gives guidance for the rational design of new material processing using thermal plasmas.
