The melting behavior of in-flight particle and its impact on splat morphology are studied. A group parameter, “melting index”, has been derived to correlate the melting status of inflight particles with particle size, velocity, and temperature which can be measured experimentally. Numerical simulations have been used to determine the unknown parameters in the melting index. The effect of particle size on its melting behavior has been investigated.
