The flow of vortex-stabilized argon–hydrogen plasma in a radiofrequency induction (RFI) plasma torch has been investigated using modern methods of computational fluid dynamics. Optimal values of the torch power and energy release in plasma have been found at various argon to hydrogen ratios in the plasma gas mixture. The heat and kinetic fields determined by calculation for a plasma-chemical reactor can be of use in designing an RFI plasma torch in part concerning the determination of the optimum zone for feeding the reactants to the reactor.
