Thermal Fatigue of Anticorrosive Coatings and Multilayer Coatings: A Performance Index Approach
A strategy is proposed to cope with combined thermal fatigue and hot corrosion resistance affecting industrial coatings. It allows comparing different materials, coatings and geometries with respect to thermal cracking and then properly selecting protective coatings. It uses a thermo-mechanical model combining the heat transfer conditions, thermal and mechanical properties of the materials and the system geometry. The model is applied to two cases: (i) borided steel, with experimental support; (ii) multilayer coating made of a thermal barrier layer, aimed at reducing thermal gradients in the system, and a corrosion layer.
