Abstract:

Article Preview

Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy was employed to examine ZrO2-8wt.%Y2O3 (yttria stabilized zirconia, YSZ) thermal barrier coating (TBC) as a function of isothermal exposure time at 1121°C. Electrochemical impedance response (resistance and capacitance of YSZ and thermally grown oxide (TGO)) of TBC specimens was analyzed with an alternative current equivalent circuit based on the multi-layered micro-constituents of TBC, and the impedance response was correlated with microstructural changes attributed to isothermal oxidation. The resistance of YSZ was observed to increase initially and then decrease with thermal exposure. The initial increase was related to the high temperature sintering of YSZ, and the subsequent decrease was discussed in terms of microcrack initiation and electrolyte penetration. The TGO thickness was linearly correlated to the capacitance of TGO.

As a function of isothermal oxidation time, the evolution in resistance and capacitance determined for TBC constituents (YSZ and TGO) was related to microstructural changes such as YSZ sintering, TGO growth and crack initiation. YSZ sintering during the initial stages of thermal exposure was related to the increase in effective resistivity and resistance of YSZ coating. Metallographycally measured TGO thickness was quantitatively correlated to the capacitance of TGO. EIS technique was suggested as a feasible NDE tool for quality monitoring of thermal barrier coating in high efficiency gas turbine engine. Fig. 6.
