Special Issue "Thermal Spray Technology"
A special issue of Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2017)
This Special Issue is dedicated to highlighting the important advances and innovations in “Thermal Spray Technology”. Thermal spray technology has been used for almost 100 years. Recently, since various new thermal spray methods, such as cold spray, suspension plasma spray, solution precursor plasma spray, have been developed and practically used, the application of thermal spray technology has spread dramatically.
This Special Issue of Coatings on “Thermal Spray Technology” intends to cover original research and critical review articles on recent advances in all aspects of thermal spray technology.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Fundamentals and new concepts of thermal spray technology
- Thermal spray coatings for electronics devices
- Modeling and simulation of thermal plasma
- Reactive thermal spray technology
