Abstract : The article contains calculations of arc in argon and hydrogen stabilized by cooled walls of channel with consideration of radiation with usage of theoretically calculated dependences describing transport properties of plasma. Composition of argon and hydrogen plasma was determined by formulas of chemical equilibrium, taking into account lowering of ionization potential. Coefficients of electrical and thermal conductivity were conducted by formulas of kinetic theory. Elementary processes are listed which cause hydrogen plasma to radiate energy. The results of calculations on argon and hydrogen are expounded in detail. (Author)
