Item description for Plasma Spray Coating: Principles and Applications by Robert B. Heimann...
This second edition has 20% more scope, with four completely new chapters and eight existing ones completely revised to include more modeling, more industrial examples, new coating types, and new medical applications. Combining theory and practice from design to application, the monograph continues to provide a state-of-the-art treatise on plasma spray technology, beginning with the principles and techniques. Successive chapters treat the three important stages of energy transfer from the plasma to the surface, with modeling, depositing, testing and applying ceramic and metallic coatings covered in the shape of industrial problem solution examples. Concluding with quality control and a new section on biomedical issues and opportunities, the book offers pertinent knowledge for materials scientists, engineers, biologists and medical researchers alike.
