On the base of gases molecular and kinetic theory a mathematical model of interaction between powder particles and plasma jet is developed. Three-dimensional description of plasma forming gas density distribution as well as particle motion in the plasma jet are a characteristic property of the model. A software for practical realization of the mathematical model is created. Said software provides the possibility to investigate an effect of low-pressure plasma spraying parameters on particle velocity and coordinates in the plasma jet. Computer simulation of particle velocity for powders from aluminium and tungsten oxides in argon plasma under 60 Mbar is conducted. A "Plasma-Technik" VPS unit is used for testing the developed model. Particle velocity measurement is made by a specially developed optical-electronic unit.
