This book provides readers with the fundamentals necessary for understanding thermal spray technology. Coverage includes in-depth discussions of various thermal spray processes, feedstock materials, particle-jet interactions, and associated yet very critical topics: diagnostics, current and emerging applications, surface science, and pre and post-treatment. This book will serve as an invaluable resource as a textbook for graduate courses in the field and as an exhaustive reference for professionals  involved in thermal spray technology.

Pierre L. Fauchais is Professor Emeritus at the University of Limoges. Joachim V.R. Heberlein is Professor Emeritus at the University of Minnesota. Maher I. Boulos is Professor Emeritus at teh Unviersity of Sherbrooke and President and CEO Tekna Plasma System Inc. All three authors are part of the Thermal Spray Hall of Fame.
