Abstract

A mechanical analysis of thin films of quasi-brittle materials used as thermal coatings for superalloy substrate is proposed. The study considers a bi-material element subjected to uniform tension formed by a thin layer of quasi-brittle material (typically a ceramic) bonded on an elastic substrate. The bounding between the coating film and the substrate is realized by a very thin primer which mechanically modeled as a zero thickness cohesive frictional interface. The analysis is developed by a non-linear finite element simulation in which, in order to consider damage size effects, a non-local isotropic damage model is adopted for the quasi-brittle coating. The results of the analysis shows the formation of multiple cracks on the coating surface which propagate up to the interface. At the same time, due to the mismatch between the elastic moduli between the coating and the substrate and the development of the transverse cracks, a competing debonding mechanism along the interface develops. The numerical results show also, for thick coating layers, the development of skew crack bands, which forecast coating spalling.
