Delamination of compressively stressed orthotopic functionally graded material coatings under thermal loading

Yilmaz, Suphi
Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat
The objective of this study is to investigate a particular type of crack problem in a layered structure consisting of a substrate, a bond coat, and an orthotropic functionally graded material coating. There is an internal crack in the orthotropic coating layer. It is parallel to the coating bond-coat interface and perpendicular to the material gradation of the coating. The position of the crack inside the coating is kept as a variable. Hence, the case of interface crack is also addressed. The top and bottom surfaces of the three layer structure are subjected to different temperatures and a two-dimensional steady-state temperature distribution develops. The case of compressively stressed coating is considered. Under this condition, buckling can occur, the crack can propagate, and the coating is prone to delamination. To predict the onset of delamination, one needs to know the fracture mechanics parameters, namely, Mode I and Mode II stress intensity factors and energy release rates. Hence, temperature distributions and fracture parameters are calculated by using finite element method and displacement correlation technique. Results of this study present the effects of boundary conditions, geometric parameters (crack length and crack position), and the type of gradation on fracture parameters.

Mixed-mode fracture analysis of orthotropic functionally graded material coatings using analytical and computational methods
Dağ, Serkan (ASME International, 2008-09-01)
This article presents analytical and computational methods for mixed-mode fracture analysis of an orthotropic functionally graded material (FGM) coating-bond coat-substrate structure. The analytical solution is developed by considering an embedded crack in the orthotropic FGM coating. The embedded crack is assumed to be loaded through arbitrary self-equilibrating mixed-mode tractions that are applied to its surfaces. Governing partial differential equations for each of the layers in the trilayer structure a...
Comparison of magnetic Barkhausen noise and ultrasonic velocity measurements for microstructure evaluation of SAE 1040 and SAE 4140 steels
Gür, Cemil Hakan; Çam, İbrahim (Elsevier BV, 2007-05-01)
The aim of this study is to compare the performance of magnetic Barkhausen noise and ultrasonic methods for the evaluation of the microstructure of commercial steels. Following the austenitization of the specimens made of SAE 1040 and SAE 4140, various heat treatments were carried out to obtain microstructures consisting of martensite, tempered martensite, fine pearlite-ferrite, and coarse pearlite-ferrite. The microstructures were initially characterized by SEM investigation and hardness measurements. The ...
Analytical solution of a crack problem in a radially graded FGM
Çetin, Suat; Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
The objective of this study is to determine stress intensity factors (SIFs) for a crack in a radially graded FGM layer on a substrate. Functionally graded coating with an edge crack perpendicular to the interface and a homogeneous substrate are bonded together. In order to make the problem analytically tractable, geometry is modeled as an FGM strip attached to a homogeneous layer. Introducing the elastic foundation underneath the homogeneous layer, an FGM coating on a thin walled cylinder can be modeled. At...
Nanowires assembled from iron manganite nanoparticles: Synthesis, characterization, and investigation of electrocatalytic properties for water oxidation reaction
Çetin, Asude; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Nalbant Esentürk, Emren (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2019-09-30)
The development of stable and effective earth-abundant metal oxide electrocatalysts is very crucial to improve competence of water electrolysis. In this study, iron manganite (FeMnO3) nanomaterials were synthesized as an affordable electrocatalyst for water oxidation reactions. The structural and chemical properties of FeMnO3 nanomaterials were studied by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, energydispersive X-ray, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, inductively c...
Contact mechanics problem between an orthotropic graded coating and a rigid punch of an arbitrary profile
ARSLAN, ONUR; Dağ, Serkan (Elsevier BV, 2018-01-01)
Singular integral equation (SIE) and finite element methods are developed for sliding contact analysis of a finite thickness orthotropic graded coating, which is perfectly bonded to an isotropic substrate. Orthotropic stiffness coefficients of the coating vary exponentially through the coating thickness. The coating is assumed to be loaded by a frictional rigid punch of an arbitrary profile. In the SIE formulation, governing partial differential equations are derived in accordance with the theory of plane e...
