This book also:

Provides a complete overview of the relationship between process parameters and coating properties

Covers both the qualitative material of the fundamental physics principles involved, and at the same time provides sufficient quantitative information for prediction of effects of process parameter changes

Includes the latest thermal spray technology developments, including new d.c. plasma and wire arc spray torch developments, r.f. induction plasma spraying, combustion based spray technologies and cold spray, particle-jet interactions and process diagnostics and on-line control methods as well as a review of current and in-development industrial applications
