Plasma spray fabrication of near-net-shape ceramic objects
Abstract: Among near net shape approaches, plasma spray deposition has its own advantages. It can perform ultrahigh temperature heating, produce components with layered compositions and structures, and fabricate thin-wall and large diameter objects. In this paper, the microstructural characteristics and their influential factors were reviewed in the light of the plasma spray forming process.
