THERMAL SPRAY COATINGS
Course Classification: Science, Technology, and Engineering
Thermal spray technology provides a cost-effective functional surface solution for many applications requiring resistance to wear, heat, and corrosion. This practically-oriented course is intended to familiarize graduate students with an understanding of thermal spray processing science and front-line research topics, with attention to latest development and innovations in the field. The second purpose of this interdisciplinary course is to give the students technological/engineering perspectives of thermal spray applications and practice.
Students’ key learning objectives: Develop knowledge and specific hands-on skills in thermal spray processing of materials; Perform spraying of single- and multi-phase compositions, ceramics, metal-matrix, and functionally gradient materials; Carry out physical properties evaluations of sprayed deposits and assessing coating micro structural features using characterization methods and analysis tools; Build finite element models of spraying nozzles and perform computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis to optimize spraying criteria and find optimal process parameters; Use and practice modern principles of advanced manufacturing technologies by performing computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) tasks.
The course has 3 sections:
There are no formal prerequisites, however basic understanding of materials science and mechanical engineering is recommended.
