Neutron and X-ray diffraction of plasma-sprayed zirconia-yttria thermal barrier coatings
Abstract ZrO 2 −7.8mol.%YO 1.5 , a fused powder, and ZrO 2 −8.7mol.%YO 1.5 , a pre-reacted powder, were plasma sprayed onto steel substrates. Neutron diffraction and X-ray diffraction of theExpand
Acoustic emission from thermally cycled plasma-sprayed oxides
Acoustic emission methodology was used to study a variety of plasma-sprayed oxide coatings subjected to thermal cycling in the range 25 to 650 C. Coatings of Al2O3, TiO2, CaO-stabilized ZrO2, andExpand
Characterization of the Mechanical Properties of Plasma-Sprayed Coatings
The heterogeneous nature of plasma-sprayed coatings plays a major role in their mechanical properties. The fundamental deformation modes are usually classified as adhesive or cohesive. However, theseExpand
Plasma Spray Processing of Ceramic Oxides
We report some measurements of unique physical properties that arise in plasma-sprayed alumina. It is suggested their origin is the O - species formed on the surface of the particles during theExpand
Phase Analysis of Plasma‐Sprayed Zirconia‐Yttria Coatings
Phase analysis of plasma-sprayed 8 wt pct-yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) thermal barrier coatings and powders was carried out by X-ray diffraction. Step scanning was used for increased peakExpand
