## Abstract

Plasma-particle interaction is a time dependent nonlinear problem. At each time step the coupled nonlinear conservation equations (2-continuity, 2-momentum, 2-energy, and the equation of state) subjected to the slip-velocity, temperature-jump boundary conditions at the particle surface are solved to determine the flow and temperature fields around the particle. The drag coefficient and the total heat flux are calculated and incorporated into the particle energy and motion equations. A computer code is developed to simulate, provide predictions of velocity, temperature, heat flux and particle size, and to assess the influence of some of the effects encountered in thermal plasma processing such as non-equilibrium, rarefaction, and particle charging.
