In this paper, a quantitative model of the viscous behavior of two-phase particles hitting a substrate is used to optimize a plasma spraying process for silicon-nitride composite layers. The model is derived from the observed behavior of Si3N4-YAS (Y2O3-Al2O3-SiO2) layers and provides a basis for further study of ceramic-matrix composite layers. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
