The purpose of this document is to present the fundamental mechanics of gouging with plasma. While plasma gouging is not a new concept, little has been presented on subjects such as nomenclature, how the gouge is actually produced, and the relationships between process parameters. This paper seeks to present this information to help aid in gouging process design.
