Özet

In this study, a nozzle has been designed in order to produce metal powder via the method of gas atomization. The design has been performed in two stages. At the first stage of design, the size and geometry of the nozzle have been determined using empirical relations as a pre-design. At the second stage, a parametrical analysis has been done using a CFD code. As a parametrical study, the effects of nozzle exit angle, throat distance and protrusion length on pressure and flow velocity at the nozzle exit are investigated with. the numerical model. Appropriate values for the investigated parameters have been determined to get maximum pressure in vacuum condition at the tip of the melt. The nozzle has been designed based on the determined parameters.
