- This article summarizes eight contributions from a thermal spray conference that was held in late 1991 at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, Long Island, New York. Plasma spray processing is discussed in terms of plasma-particle interactions, deposit formation dynamics, thermal properties of thermal barrier coatings, mechanical properties of coatings, feedstock materials, porosity, manufacture of intermetallic coatings, and synchrotron X-ray microtomographic methods for thermal spray materials. Each section is intended to present a concise statement of a specific practical and/or scientific problem. It then describes current work that is being performed to investigate this area, and finally suggests areas of research that may be fertile for future activity.
