Modeling and Simulation of Ceramic/Metal Gradient Thermal Barrier Coating
Using the development tool C++ Builder and adopting object oriented programming method, the ceramic/metal gradient thermal barrier coating design software (CCDS) is developed according to software engineering criterion. The CCDS, which has user-friendly interface, is composed of three functional modules: preprocess module, analysis module and post process module. In addition, this software is attached with an optimal design module and an expert module. The calculation and design of the ceramic/metal gradient thermal barrier coating can be carried out by the CCDS, and the numerical results show good agreement with the analytical results.
