A simplified 1D model has been developed to calculate the temperature-time history of alumina layering splats. The splats were obtained by plasma spraying alumina fused-and-crushed particles onto steel substrates. The model correlates solidification time with splat layer thickness and cooling rate and helps to explain the process of columnar growth, the development of residual stresses, and the effect of quenching and expansion mismatch.
