There has been a great deal of effort in developing finite element models of the Cold Spray process. Cold Spray is a low temperature thermal spray process that is capable of producing nearly dense metallic coatings with exceptional mechanical properties. The particle/substrate interaction during deposition is of great interest, and is the most difficult to accurately model. Most, if not all, researchers use finite element codes such as Abaqus CAE and ANSYS. The finite element models today are capable of predicting the initial impact and deformation of a particle. Work has been done by a few researchers to investigate the effects of particle adhesion after impact. This work is summarized in this paper. A single particle impact model has been developed in this work to predict the impact behavior of particles that have been encapsulated in a dissimilar material. This model predicts the deformation of the particle and substrate during initial loading. The effects of particle velocity and other processing parameters are investigated.
