The Role of Interacting Failure Mechanisms for APS-TBC Life Time

Schu 729/16-1

Bild Forschungsprojekt

Hochtemperaturofen in Betrieb

Period: 2005-04-06 to 2009-03-31
Funder: German Research Foundation (DFG)
Project Manager: Dr. Mario Rudolphi
Research Group: High Temperature Materials

The aim of this project is to develop a life time prediction model for the top coats of the air plasma sprayed thermal barrier coating systems (APS-TBC). These coatings are made from yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) and are currently used to protect the superalloy components (i.e. blades and vanes) found in land based gas turbines and aero engines.
