Abstract: Tensile creep tests were conducted at 980°C under a constant stress on a single crystal nickel base superalloy. Some tests were interrupted at different stages during the creep process. The strain-time curves indicated that this alloy exhibited conventional primary, steady-state and tertiary stages at this temperature. The transmission electron microscope (TEM) observations of foils taken from the gauge sections of specimens were made to interpret the microstructural evolution that occurred during the creep process. It was found that the γ′ particles were rafted in the direction perpendicular to the applied stress. The acceleration of the creep rate was related to the change of the dislocation density.

Abstract: Turbine vanes and blades are the most intensively loaded elements in that they are subjected to a large variety of mechanical and high temperature loads. The thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are widely used on different hot components of gas turbines, as blades and vanes, for both, power engineering as well as aeronautical applications. Currently, two methods are used for depositing TBCs on substrate, which are plasma spray (PS) and electron beam-physical vapor deposition (EB-PVD). A typical TBCs system consists of two thin coatings, including a ceramic coating and a metallic bond coat. Despite considerable efforts, the highly desirable prediction of their life time is still a demanding task. The PS coating was focused on in this work. Firstly, the TBCs systems are multiplayer material systems. The material properties are not easily determined, such as Young’s modulus of the top-coating of TBCs. Using the resonant frequency and the composite beam theory, the Young’s modulus of APS TBCs was gotten under from room temperature to 1150°C. Then using a commercial finite-element program, the model geometry is that of a cylinder specimen. The interface region between bond coat and top coating is modeled and meshed with a sinusoidal geometry. The temperature was designed and cycled over a range from room temperature to 1050°C. The force-air-cooling was designed to form temperature gradient across the thickness of TBCs. Finally, the fatigue life of TBCs was predicated. The maximum relative error is 20.1%.
