    Special mechanical properties have widely been demonstrated with bulk nanocrystalline materials. An increasing effort has been made to transfer such improvements also into thermal sprayed ceramic coatings. This paper focuses on such efforts in alumina-based ceramic coatings. The optimization of process conditions and effect of different process parameters on the mechanical performance of high velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) sprayed ceramic coatings is discussed.
