Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation
Center for Nondestructive Evaluation

Begun in 1973, the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) is the premier international NDE meeting designed to provide an interface between research and early engineering through the presentation of current ideas and results focused on facilitating a rapid transfer to engineering development.

This site provides free, public access to papers presented at the annual QNDE conference between 1983 and 1999, and abstracts for papers presented at the conference since 2001.

Abstract

Thermal spray is the process of depositing metal, alloy, and ceramic coatings on properly prepared substrate materials so that they solidify on and bond mechanically, chemically, and metallurgically to the substrate materials. Thermal-spray coatings are applied to improve surface-wear characteristics, to provide resistance to heat, oxidation, and chemical environments; to restore dimension to the original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) specifications; to reduce erosion wear; and to improve corrosion control.
