Abstract : Water cooling and transpiration cooling in plasma generator constrictors were investigated in this study. A comparison was obtained of the two types of cooling methods in order to determine the advantages of each and the range of their applicability. The comparison was made on the basis of similar device geometry and constant power. Argon was the propellant gas. Detailed findings are enclosed. (Author)
