A numerical study has been conducted on yttria stabilized zirconia and molybdenum splat cooling taking into account the effects of various parameters. In particular, the effect of the splat thickness, the splat/substrate interface thermal resistance, the latent heat of solidification and the substrate initial temperature on the solidification occurrence and kinetics have been studied. A two-dimension model of heat transfer taking into account the phase change during rapid solidification with an enthalpy formulation has been used for these calculations.
