Sisson, Richard D.
The physical simulation (light box) of the Electron Beam-Physical Vapor Deposition (EB-PVD) coating process was improved and results of experiments recorded. The light box was first repaired and tested to ensure its functionality. It was then updated to allow for experiments with and without a shadow bar. Finally, data collected from experiments was compared to actual coating thickness measured in the EB-PVD coating chamber. All data corresponded accurately with coating thickness verifying a successful simulation.
