Spray forming combines the metallurgical processes of metal casting and powder metallurgy to fabricate metal products with enhanced properties. This book provides an introduction to the various modelling and simulation techniques employed in spray forming, and shows how they are applied in process analysis and development. The author begins by deriving and describing the main models. He then presents their application in the simulation of the key features of spray forming. Wherever possible he discusses theoretical results with reference to experimental data. Building on the features of metal spray forming, he also derives common characteristic modelling features that may be useful in the simulation of related spray processes. The book is aimed at researchers and engineers working in process technology, chemical engineering and materials science.

Review

'… an authoritative book on the general subject of modelling sprayforming of metals. The book will be of interest to a wide range of researchers in both academia and industry, working in fields as diverse as particulate transport, fuel spray injectors, spray simulation and advanced metallurgical processing … makes an ideal reference book for the metal spray community … It presents the topic in an easy-to-access manner, making it suitable for those new to the topic … a very useful book for those already working in this area … I enjoyed reviewing this book and intend to keep it on my shelf … a nice well-presented book, which I believe will become a classic for the metal sprayforming industry.' Journal of Process Mechanical Engineering
