  1. STTR Phase I: Direction and Profile Control for Thermal Sprays

    SBC: CASTLEROCK ENGINEERING            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this effect to manipulate thermal spray jet stream and vector the stream such that the hot thermal gas stream ...
