Finite element modelling of stresses and failure within plasma spray thermal barrier coating systems
Kyaw, Si Thu (2013) Finite element modelling of stresses and failure within plasma spray thermal barrier coating systems. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Air plasma sprayed thermal barrier coating (APS TBC) systems are usually applied to engine components to reduce the temperature of the substrate and increase the efficiency of engines. However, failure of these coatings leads to oxidation and corrosion of the substrate. Therefore, a thorough understanding of the coating failure is necessary to predict the lifetime of coated components.
