Explanation of the effect of rapid cycling on oxidation, rumpling, microcracking and lifetime of air plasma sprayed thermal barrier coatings
Surface and Coatings Technology 244:109 (2014)The effect of cycle duration on thermally grown oxide (TGO) growth kinetics, bond coat rumpling kinetics, microcracking and failure life was examined by cyclic furnace tests at three dwell times and at three temperatures for an air plasma sprayed (APS) thermal barrier coating (TBC) samples...
Effects of chemical treatment of indium tin oxide electrode on its surface roughness and work function
Surface and Coatings Technology 244:189 (2014)We report the effects of chemical treatment of indium tin oxide (ITO) surface on its surface chemistry such as chemical composition and surface roughness and on its usage as an electrode with monolayer modification. Atomic force microscopy, angel-resolved X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and Kelvin...
Preparation of oxidation protective ZrB2–SiC coating by in-situ reaction method on SiC-coated carbon/carbon composites
Surface and Coatings Technology 247:61 (2014)In order to reduce production cost and effectively improve the oxidation protection ability of the ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs) ZrB2–SiC coating for the SiC-coated carbon/carbon (C/C) composites, a ZrB2–SiC outer coating was prepared by in-situ reaction method on SiC-coated C/C....

Tin–zinc alloy electrodeposition from aqueous citrate baths
Surface and Coatings Technology 240:311 (2014)The process of tin–zinc alloy electrodeposition from aqueous citrate electrolytes was studied. The influence of applied potential, current density, hydrodynamic conditions, electrolyte composition and charge transfer on the electrodeposition of Sn–Zn alloy was determined. Depending on thes...
Optimization selection of the thermal conductivity of the top ceramic layer in the Double-Ceramic-Layer Thermal Barrier Coatings based on th...
Surface and Coatings Technology 240:320 (2014)The Double-Ceramic-Layer Thermal Barrier Coating (DCL-TBC) consists of a top ceramic layer (TC1), an inside ceramic layer (TC2), bond coat and alloy substrate. A FE numerical model had been developed to calculate the temperature of the DCL-TBC. The influence of the thermal conduc...
Structure and deformation behavior of Zr–Cu thin films deposited on Kapton substrates
Surface and Coatings Technology 239:171 (2014)We study Zr–Cu thin films deposited on flexible Kapton substrates by magnetron sputtering. The morphology of “as-grown” films had complex hierarchical structure with size of building blocks from ~14nm to ~3μm. The larger was the size of hierarchical unit, the thicker was the boundary separating it f...
The microstructure and mechanical properties of nitrogen and boron contained ZrCuAlNi thin film metallic glass composites
Surface and Coatings Technology 237:276 (2013)In this work, nitrogen contained and B doped ZrCuAlNi thin film metallic glass composites (TFMGCs) were grown by magnetron co-sputtering process. Boron element was doped to evaluate its influence on the microstructure and mechanical properties of nitrogen contained TFMGCs. The supercooled...
Development of advanced duplex surface systems by combining CrAlN multilayer coatings with plasma nitrided steel substrates
Surface and Coatings Technology 236:2 (2013)Both modelling analyses and experimental work have recently confirmed that the failure of thin coatings on steel, especially under high loads for some demanding applications, is related to the lack of mechanical support from the substrate, which means that the exceptional hardness, toughne...
Low temperature pack aluminising kinetics of nickel electroplated on creep resistant ferritic steel
Surface and Coatings Technology 236:135 (2013)A systematic study was made to determine the low temperature (<700°C) growth kinetics of the Ni2Al3 layer formed by the pack aluminising process on the surface of nickel electroplated on creep resistant ferritic steels. The aluminising powder packs were prepared using Al powder as a source...
