Engineering analytical formulas describing variations of the final values of the splat thickness and radius during flattening of composite particles in thermal spraying are obtained. The effective values of the droplet parameters (impact velocity and viscosity) and the Reynolds number are introduced taking into account a composition of the composite particles. Analytical results obtained agree well with the experimental data available.
