The seizure process has been considered from the non-equilibrium thermodynamics and self-organization theory standpoints. It has been testified that, for the intensification of powder mix particles seizing with the substrate during spraying, it is required that relatively light components of the powder mix should be preferably transferred into the friction zone. The theory inferences have been experimentally confirmed, as exemplified by the gas dynamic spray of copper-zinc powders mix. View Full-Text
