Thermal spraying induces stresses, which strongly influence thermomechanical properties of the deposits. To study both generation and influence of these stresses, various techniques could be used separately and/or concurrently. "In-situ" curvature, neutron diffraction and incremental hole drilling methods are often presented as complementary techniques. In this study, partially stabilized zirconia coatings, performed onto steel substrates at various spraying temperatures, have allowed to compare these three different methods.
