- Particle/substrate interactions during thermal spraying
- Wang, D.; Berndt, C. C.
- Thermal spraying has evolved into one of the more generic and valuable material processing techniques and a major means by which protective coatings are deposited. The plasma spray process leads to the formation of a large number of non-equilibrium phases; including amorphous structures which exhibit different material properties than materials manufactured from bulk processes. The high velocity deposition of a wide range of plasma processed materials yields metastable structures. In this work it is intended to relate the processing, structure and property responses of thermal sprayed coatings. Initially a macroscopic picture of the coating structure is presented. The second part of the paper concerns a model for the development of the microstructure of alumina coatings.
