The curling up of splats of molten metal deposited on a cold substrate was investigated both experimentally and numerically. An analytical model based on mismatch of thermal expansion between the splat and substrate was developed to calculate the deformation of the splat after curling up. The curling up angle at the edges of splats was predicted using the analytical model and compared with the experimental measurements. The prediction shows good agreement with the experiments.
