The AWS Welding book has it and also, they have information specific to
the TSP discipline. Check here.

Very cool process on some of the stuff I work on. I farm it all out - Not
like I want to worsen a 5k crankshaft.
Ever since I joined (The AWS)I have been getting a lot of media and a LOT
better at my welding. Best money I ever spent on my edumacation since
kollege and hooked on phonics did not work for me!

Subject: thermal spray welding
Thermal Spray Welding is a surfacing process to provide resistance to
heat, wear and corrosion. The surfacing material (usually in powder
form, but can be in wire form) is introduced into a gas combustion,
electric arc, or plasma torch where it is turned into a molten state,
atomized and accelerated to a high velocity using some gas under
pressure, then sprayed onto the surface being coated, similar to
airbrush painting. Thermal Spray Welding is sometimes called Thin
Film Application. Equipment is specialized and expensive; hence,
usually found only in industry and in educational institutions.
offers a basic self study course.
For anything more advanced, you will have to find an eductional
institution that teaches welding engineering, for example:
