Abstract [en]

Thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) fabricated by suspension plasma spraying (SPS) have shown improved performance due to their low thermal conductivity and high durability along with relatively low production cost. Improvements in SPS TBCs that could further enhance their lifetime would lead to their widespread industrialisation. The objective of this study was to design a SPS TBC system with optimised topcoat microstructure and topcoat bondcoat interface, combined with appropriate bondcoat microstructure and chemistry, which could exhibit high cyclic lifetime. Bondcoat deposition processes investigated in this study were high velocity air fuel (HVAF) spraying, high velocity oxy fuel spraying, vacuum plasma spraying, and diffusion process. Topcoat microstructure with high column density along with smooth topcoat bondcoat interface and oxidation resistant bondcoat was shown as a favourable design for significant improvements in the lifetime of SPS TBCs. HVAF sprayed bondcoat treated by shot peening and grit blasting was shown to create this favourable design.

Abstract [en]

Improvements in performance of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) used in gas turbine engines are highly desired as they can result in higher engine efficiency leading to reduction of harmful emissions. Suspension plasma spraying (SPS) has been shown to produce high performance porous columnar TBCs that can provide low thermal conductivity and high durability. Apart from the topcoat microstructure and chemistry, the lifetime of TBCs is also dependent on bondcoat microstructure and chemistry, and topcoat-bondcoat interface roughness. In case of SPS TBCs, the interface roughness can significantly affect the columnar topcoat microstructure, thus making the bondcoat selection even more crucial. In this work, six different sets of samples were produced by fabricating bondcoats with conventional atmospheric plasma spraying (APS), high velocity air fuel (HVAF) spraying, or hybrid water/argon stabilised plasma (WSP-H) gun, and SPS topcoats using axial SPS (ASPS) or WSP-H spray guns. The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of varying the topcoat microstructure, bondcoat microstructure and topcoat-bondcoat interface roughness on oxide growth behaviour and thermal cyclic fatigue (TCF) lifetime of SPS TBCs. Samples after failure were investigated to understand the failure mechanism in each case. The results showed that changing the bondcoat spray process and spray gun resulted in significant variation in bondcoat surface roughness. A porous columnar structure was created by the ASPS process, while a feathery columnar structure was created by the WSP-H spray gun in this study. Samples with WSP-H bondcoat resulted in highest cyclic lifetime in this study, despite showing severe oxidation of the bondcoat as compared to APS and HVAF bondcoats. This result could be attributed to the very high bondcoat surface roughness in these samples that could have resulted in improved mechanical anchoring of the topcoat. The HVAF bondcoats showed the best oxidation resistance in this study. © 2019 Elsevier B.V.

Abstract [en]

Fabrication of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) by suspension plasma spraying (SPS) seems to be a promising alternative for the industry as SPS TBCs have the potential to provide lower thermal conductivity and longer lifetime than state-of-the-art allowing higher engine efficiency. Further improvements in lifetime of SPS TBCs and fundamental understanding of failure mechanisms in SPS TBCs are necessary for their widespread commercialisation. In this study, the influence of varying topcoat-bondcoat interface topography and bondcoat microstructure on lifetime was investigated. The objective of this work was to gain fundamental understanding of relationships between topcoat-bondcoat interface topography, bondcoat microstructure, and failure mechanisms in SPS TBCs. Seven sets of samples were produced in this study by keeping same bondcoat chemistry but varying feedstock particle size distributions and bondcoat spray processes. The topcoat chemistry and spray parameters were kept identical in all samples. Three-dimensional surface measurements along with scanning electron microscopy images were used to characterise bondcoat surface topography. The effect of varying interface topography and bondcoat microstructure on thermally grown oxide formation, stresses and lifetime was discussed. The results showed that varying bondcoat powder size distribution and spray process can have a significant effect on lifetime of SPS TBCs. Smoother bondcoats seemed to enhance the lifetime in case of SPS TBCs in case of same bondcoat chemistry and similar bondcoat microstructures. When considering the samples investigated in this study, samples with high velocity air-fuel (HVAF) bondcoats resulted in higher lifetime than other samples indicating that HVAF could be a suitable process for bondcoat deposition in SPS TBCs. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.

Abstract [en]

Thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) manufactured with suspension plasma spray (SPS) are promising candidates for use in gas turbines due to their high strain tolerance during thermal cyclic fatigue (TCF). However, corrosion often occurs alongside thermal fatigue and coating durability under these conditions is highly desirable. The current study focuses on understanding the corrosion behavior and its influence on the thermal cyclic fatigue life of SPS TBCs. Corrosion tests were conducted at 780 OC using a mixed-gas (1SO2-0.1CO-20CO2-N2(bal.) in vol. %) for 168h. They were later thermally cycled between 100-1100 ⁰C with a 1h hold time at 1100 ⁰C. Corrosion test results indicated that the damage predominantly started from the edges and a milder damage was observed at the center. Nickel sulfide was observed on top of the top coat and also in the columnar gaps of the top coat. Chromium oxides were observed inside the top coat columnar gaps but close to the bond coat/top coat interface. They were believed to reduce the strain tolerance of SPS TBCs to an extent and also amplify the thermal mismatch stresses during TCF tests. This, together with a fast growth of alumina during the TCF, resulted in a significant drop in the TCF life compared to the standard TCF tests.

Abstract [en]

Suspension plasma spray (SPS) is capable of producing coatings with porous columnar structure, and it is also a much cheaper process compared to the conventionally used electron beam physical vapor deposition (EB-PVD). Although TBCs with a columnar microstructure that are fabricated using SPS have typically lower thermal conductivity than EB-PVD, they are used sparingly in the aerospace industry due to their lower fracture toughness and limited lifetime expectancy. Lifetime of TBCs is highly influenced by the topcoat microstructure. The objective of this work was to study the TBCs produced using axial SPS with different process parameters. Influence of the microstructure on lifetime of the coatings was of particular interest, and it was determined by thermal cyclic fatigue testing. The effect of sintering on microstructure of the coatings exposed to high temperatures was also investigated. Porosity measurements were taken using image analysis technique, and thermal conductivity of the coatings was determined by laser flash analysis. The results show that axial SPS is a promising method of producing TBCs having various microstructures with good lifetime. Changes in microstructure of topcoat due to sintering were seen evidently in porous coatings, whereas dense topcoats showed good resistance against sintering.

Abstract [en]

Hybrid Water-Stabilized Plasma (WSP-H) torch provides high-enthalpy plasma which may be utilized for high-throughput and yet economical spraying of coatings from powders, suspensions, and solutions. It was previously demonstrated that microstructures and functional properties of the WSP-H coatings may be tailored to a wide extent for various new applications, namely those requiring high coating thickness and/or coating of large components. In this study, applicability of WSP-H technology for spraying of novel thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) is demonstrated. WSP-H technology was used for spraying of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) top-coats from powder, suspension and solution. Yttria content in the top-coat feedstock was 7-8 wt.%. NiCrAlY bond-coat was also sprayed by WSP-H and Hastelloy-X alloy was used as substrate material. Microstructure, phase composition, and endurance of the deposited coatings in thermal cycling fatigue (TCF) test were evaluated. Each thermal cycle consisted of rapid heating to 1100 °C, followed by one hour dwell and rapid cooling. All coatings showed excellent stability and TCF resistance withstanding more than 700 cycles surpassing in TCF test some of the currently commercially used TBCs. Lifetime of TBC with columnar top-coat deposited from suspension exceeded even more than 900 cycles. © 2019 ASM International. All rights reserved.

Abstract [en]

Demands for improved fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions of diesel engines have been the driving force for car industry in the past decades. One way to achieve this would be by using thermal spraying to apply a thermal insulation layer on parts of the engine’s combustion chamber. A candidate thermal spray process to give coatings with appropriate properties is suspension plasma spray (SPS). SPS, which uses a liquid feedstock for the deposition of finely structured columnar ceramic coatings, was investigated in this work for application in light-duty diesel engines. In this work, different spray processes and materials were explored to achieve coatings with optimized microstructure on the head of aluminum pistons used in diesel engine cars. The functional properties of the coatings were evaluated in single-cylinder engine experiments. The influence of thermo-physical properties of the coatings on their functional properties has been discussed. The influence of different spray processes on coating formation on the complex piston head profiles has been also discussed. The results show that SPS can be a promising technique for producing coatings on parts of the combustion chamber, which can possibly lead to higher engine efficiency in light-duty diesel engines.

Abstract [en]

Improvement in the performance of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) is one of the key objectives for further development of gas turbine applications. The material most commonly used as TBC topcoat is yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ). However, the usage of YSZ is limited by the operating temperature range which in turn restricts the engine efficiency. Materials such as pyrochlores, perovskites, rare earth garnets are suitable candidates which could replace YSZ as they exhibit lower thermal conductivity and higher phase stability at elevated temperatures. The objective of this work was to investigate different multilayered TBCs consisting of advanced topcoat materials fabricated by suspension plasma spraying (SPS). The investigated topcoat materials were YSZ, dysprosia-stabilized zirconia, gadolinium zirconate, and ceria–yttria-stabilized zirconia. All topcoats were deposited by TriplexPro-210TM plasma spray gun and radial injection of suspension. Lifetime of these samples was examined by thermal cyclic fatigue and thermal shock testing. Microstructure analysis of as-sprayed and failed specimens was performed with scanning electron microscope. The failure mechanisms in each case have been discussed in this article. The results show that SPS could be a promising route to produce multilayered TBCs for high-temperature applications.

Abstract [en]

Axial-suspension-plasma spraying (ASPS) is a fairly recent thermal spray technology which enables production of ceramic top coats in TBCs, incorporating simultaneously the properties of both the conventional-plasma sprayed (highly insulating porous structures) and electron-beam-physical-vapor-deposited (strain-tolerant columnar structures) top coats. TBCs are required to insulate the hot components in a gas turbine engine against high temperature and harsh operating conditions. Periodic heating and cooling of turbine engines during operation can create severe thermal cyclic fatigue conditions which can degrade the performance of these coatings eventually leading to the failure. An in-depth experimental investigation was performed to understand the failure behavior of columnar TBCs subjected to thermal cyclic fatigue (TCF) test at 1100 C. The study revealed that the TCF performance was influenced to an extent, by the top coat microstructure, but was primarily affected by the severity of thermally grown oxide (TGO) growth at the bond coat-top coat interface. Mixed failure modes comprising crack propagation through the bond coat-TGO interface, through TGO and within the top coat were identified. Based on the analysis of the experimental results and thorough discussion a novel design of microstructure for the high TCF performance columnar TBC is proposed. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.

Abstract [en]

Development of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) manufactured by suspension plasma spraying (SPS) is of high commercial interest as SPS has been shown capable of producing highly porous columnar microstructures similar to the conventionally used electron beam–physical vapor deposition. However, lifetime of SPS coatings needs to be improved further to be used in commercial applications. The bondcoat microstructure as well as topcoat–bondcoat interface topography affects the TBC lifetime significantly. The objective of this work was to investigate the influence of different bondcoat deposition processes for SPS topcoats. In this work, a NiCoCrAlY bondcoat deposited by high velocity air fuel (HVAF) was compared to commercial vacuum plasma-sprayed NiCoCrAlY and PtAl diffusion bondcoats. All bondcoat variations were prepared with and without grit blasting the bondcoat surface. SPS was used to deposit the topcoats on all samples using the same spray parameters. Lifetime of these samples was examined by thermal cyclic fatigue testing. Isothermal heat treatment was performed to study bondcoat oxidation over time. The effect of bondcoat deposition process and interface topography on lifetime in each case has been discussed. The results show that HVAF could be a suitable process for bondcoat deposition in SPS TBCs.
