Abstract : The authors give relationships for the calculation, by the method of successive approximations, of the electrical and thermal characteristics during stabilized (asymptotic) heating of a gas from the column of an electric arc in a circular duct, with consideration of radiation. A simplified method is proposed for estimating the effect of radiation on the basis of data on the degree of blackness of the plane-parallel layer or of the hemispheric volume. The results of the calculations for air are given.
