This paper presents results regarding the influence of the spray angle on the spray shape. Simulations of the liquid dynamics of the impact of Ni particles, which were the characteristic of both HVOF and DC plasma conditions, are carried out. The results show that the splashes stretch with decreasing spray angle and confirm previous experimental observations to the effect that the splash area varies little with the spray angle. In addition, the results indicate that more than 90% of the material is applied "behind" the point of impact, even at spray angle is equal to 45 degree. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
