We suggest a mathematical model for electron-beam assisted deposition of protective coatings that involves the equations of heat conduction, chemical kinetics, and porosity evolution. The model was numerically applied to the reactive Ni–Al system and theoretical predictions were critically analyzed by comparison with experiment.
