Paper Abstract

A fundamental study for an inelastic deformation of freestanding plasma-sprayed thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) has been conducted. Cantilever-type bending tests are carried out to obtain stress-strain curve of the coating extracted from TBC coated sample by an electrochemical treatment. In order to investigate about an inelastic deformation and its mechanism appeared in the freestanding ceramic coating, in-situ scanning electron microscope (SEM) observation is performed by means of a small tensile testing device that can insert into SEM vacuum chamber. The bending test result indicated that the coating deforms with nonlinear under a monotonic loading and with hysteresis loop under cyclic loading, in spite of ceramic material. In-flight particle velocity in the spraying parameter affected significantly the stressstrain curve. In-situ SEM observation during the bending test revealed that sliding at boundary between splats plays an important role in inelastic deformation.
