Plasma torches with water-stabilized arcs provide an alternative to commonly used sources of thermal plasmas based on gas stabilised arcs or RF discharges. Such plasma torches with water-stabilized arc provide special performance characteristics in some plasma processing applications like plasma spraying or waste treatment. The research and development of the plasma generator is providing in collaboration with the Institute of Plasma Physics AS CZ. The goal of the described works is the optimisation of the arc chamber geometry by using of new methods for innovative engineering design and the finding of optimal geometry and flow conditions by numerical computations of the two-phase flow.

Keywords: Transformation process, CAD model, innovative engineering, CFD software, design, simulation parameters, water-stabilised arc
