Abstract:

The specific objectives for the subject program were to 1 Study in detail the flame spraying process in order to determine the metallurgical nature of the steel-to-molybdenum bond and the molybdenum itself. 2 Determine, if possible, the actual flaw-producing mechanism. 3 Investigate various nondestructive test NDT methods with the purpose of developing a method of detecting flaws and determining the integrity of the flame-sprayed coating.
