: Dear Sir,
: Im working on ways to predict the life of a NiCrAlY sprayed coating. I would be greatful if you could suggest me ways to asses the same. Further while evaluating the mechanical properties of the coating, the Nano-indentation technique that i had employed gave results which are difficult to decipher and the error in the results is also very much is there any other method to estimate the same.
: Further can any one suggest how nano particle coatng through thermal spray route would be useful. We are facing problems in procuring the same kindly suggest us a suitable vendor who can supply us at resonable price.
: Regards
: Girish
Refer to my second book on 'Advanced Thermally Assisted Surface Engineering Processes(Kluwer Academic Publishings, MA, USA,2004).A full chapter on the coating quality & life cycle estimation shall provide you the required guidance.
