Description

Thermal Spray Fabrication of Heat Transfer Surfaces and Devices reviews the current state of research on select processes for the development of coatings-based heat transfer surfaces and devices, focusing on materials selection, fabrication processes and materials characterization. Analytical modeling and experiments aimed at quantifying the performance of heat transfer surfaces and devices are presented, along with case studies that reinforce the outcomes of analytical models. The included information helps guide readers to industrial situations in which the coatings or devices may be applied.

Key Features

  • Describes thermal-sprayed coatings in terms of their development as heat transfer surfaces or devices
  • Provides predictive models for the thermal performance of surfaces or devices
  • Presents case studies that describe potential, practical situations in which coatings or devices may be applied

Readership

Materials scientist, thermal spray fabricators, mechanical engineers, and corporate end-users of coatings. Senior-level graduates and 1st year PhDs working on surface engineering, thermal spraying, or heat transfer
