SHAPING OF COATINGS OF STABILIZED THICKNESS BY IMMERSION OF A WORKPIECE IN A MELTL. M. Kozhuroa and Zh. A. Mrochekb UDC 631.67 A mathematical model of the process of facing of the workpiece surface by immersion in a melt, which allows optimization of the regime of deposition of a coating of stabilized thickness, has been obtained. It has been known that in facing by immersion in a melt, the initial and boundary conditions set on different technological transitions are interrelated and they affect the final result. aBelarusian State Agrarian Technical University, 99 F.
