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.
