This paper presents novel results of a series of experiments intended to study the role of the size of the feedstock powder on the microstructure of the deposits. For this purpose, Metco and the feedstock powder, yttria-stabilized (8% wt) zirconia, with number-weighted mean particle sizes of 32, 47, 56, and, 88 micrometer, are used. Small-angle neutron scattering and multiple small-angle neutron scattering (MSANS) methods are applied to determine the microstructure of the four deposits. Companion indentation measurements are performed to determine the elastic moduli of the deposits. The paper also discusses the MSANS 3-void model in relation to the anisotropic elastic properties. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
