Cold spray nozzles can have a significant impact on particle behavior and coating quality depending on their shape and size. This study investigates the influence of nozzle geometry on the cold spray process. Simulations show that particle velocities are highest at the outlet of de Laval type nozzles and that convergence pipe nozzles achieve the highest particle temperatures. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
