This book guides readers through the systematic analysis of Arc Spraying: one of the most widespread and important thermal spraying methods. Along the way, readers from industry and research laboratories become familiar with the features of the process and physical-chemical regulations of particles in flight, coating formation, internal coating properties, and their output parameters. The book is ideal for engineers, technicians, and scientists engaged in welding and thermal spraying and stands as an excellent reference for students interested in advanced coatings technology.
Professor Yury Korobov has a Doctorate of Technical Sciences. At Uraltransmash he developed the technologies of welding and thermal spraying for defense and civil products. Since 2012, Dr. Korobov has been working as the Head of the Welding Technology Department in the Ural Federal University. He also works on modeling of physics-chemical high temperature processes and studies the properties of the coatings. Dr. Korobov is the author of over 240 publications, including this volume. More than 20 Thermal Spraying bays were organized under his technical supervision. Director of the Ural Welding Institute, Honored Inventor of Russia.
