Abstract: The fatigue strength of TiAl intermetallic alloy coated with TiAlN film was studied in vacuum at 1073K using a SEM-servo testing machine. In addition, three kinds of TiAlN films were given by physical vapor deposition (1, 3, and 10μ m). The fatigue strength of 3μ m was highest. Also, the fatigue strength of 1μ m was lowest. From this result, existence of optimum film thickness was suggested because the difference of fatigue strength arose in each film thickness. The justification for existence of optimum film thickness is competition of 45-degree crack and 90-degree crack. The 45-degree crack is phenomenon seen in the thin film (1μ m), and is caused by plastic deformation of TiAl substrate. The 45-degree crack is the factor of the fatigue strength fall by the side of thin film. In contrast, the 90-degree crack is phenomenon in the thick film (10μ m), and is caused as result of reaction against load to film. The 90-degree crack is the factor of the fatigue strength fall by the side of thick film. In conclusion, the optimum film thickness can perform meso fracture control, and improves fatigue strength.

Abstract: The fatigue characteristic of thermal barrier-coated Ni-base superalloy IN738LC at room temperature was studied by fatigue test using SEM-servo testing machine. In order to eliminate the influence of micro-shrinkage in IN738LC and purely investigate the effect of TBC on fatigue characteristic, HIP treated IN738LC was used in comparison with NON-HIP treated one. The results indicate that HIP treatment is effective to remove micro-shrinkage and fatigue life is greatly improved. The TBC coating layer is a strength member in the small test specimen at room temperature, and TBC coated material showed lower fatigue life rather than IN738LC without TBC.

Abstract: In this research, surface modification was given to CD (Carbide Dispersion)-carburized steel used for sliding parts of vehicles, and functional evaluation was performed. It developed the DLC-coating which has multi-layered structure according to a UBMS (UnBalance-Magnetron-Sputtering) process as aims at improvement in the tribological properties in the sliding parts for vehicles. In order to maintain the adhesion with parent material (CD-carburized steel), intermediate layer that gradient hardness was generated. Structure of multi-layered part was made into ten layers. The multi-layered part consists of soft layers and hard layers. A soft layer bears high-ductility and the hard layer bears wear resistance and tribological property. Moreover, as functional evaluation of coating material, it investigated about the friction wear characteristic and influence that a DLC-coating has on the fatigue characteristic.
