Paper Abstract

We present a computer model which allows us to explore the failure behavior of surface coatings. We use a quasi-static three-dimensional Lattice Spring Model coupled with the velocity Verlet algorithm to simulate surface coating on substrate systems. Fracture, elastic response, and shrinking are considered in our simulation method. The results provide a framework upon which the failure mechanisms of surface coatings can be investigated.
