The properties of a thermally sprayed coating, such as its durability or thermal conductivity depend on its microstructure, which is in turn directly related to the particle impact process. To simulate this process, we present a 3D smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) model, which represents the molten droplet as an incompressible fluid, while a semi-implicit Enthalpy-Porosity method is applied for modeling the phase change during solidification. In addition, we present an implicit correction… 
Quantitative Evaluation of SPH in TIG Spot Welding
It is shown that SPH is able to yield excellent results, especially given the observed deviations between the investigated FEM methods and as such, the accuracy of the method for an industrially relevant engineering application is validated.

Simulations of Droplet Spreading and Solidification Using an Improved SPH Model
Smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method as one of the meshless Lagrangian methods has been widely used to simulate problems with free surface. The traditional SPH method suffers from so-called
Simulation of thermally sprayed coating properties considering the splat boundaries
The properties of thermally sprayed coatings depend heavily on the solidification process during the impact on the substrate. The simulation of the coating build-up is of essential importance in
Numerical Investigation of Substrate Melting and Deformation During Thermal Spray Coating by SPH Method
The fluid–solid coupling model is developed to simulate substrate melting and deformation during molten droplet impact. In this model, the liquid and solid parts of splat and substrate are governed
Splat shapes in a thermal spray coating process: Simulations and experiments
We studied the deposition of nickel particles in a plasma spray on a stainless steel surface using both experiments and numerical simulations. We developed a three-dimensional computational model of
A stochastic model to simulate the formation of a thermal spray coating
We present a three-dimensional, stochastic model of thermal spray coating. It is capable of predicting coating porosity, thickness, roughness, and the variation of these properties with spray
Formation of Solid Splats During Thermal Spray Deposition
This paper reviews the findings of recent research on the formation of solid splats by the impact of thermal spray particles on solid substrates. It discusses methods of describing the substrate, by
