Advanced Coatings for Challenging Environments

This project mainly focuses on improving thermal cyclic fatigue life of TBC, life modelling of TBC, and increasing corrosion resistance of bond coats/overlays.
Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) are advanced material systems that are being widely employed in gas turbine engines. These coatings enable the turbine to operate at higher temperatures and thereby improving its efficiency.
