Computationally-efficient surrogate models based on a Polynomial Chaos Expansion (PCE) are developed to quantify the uncertainties in the fracture behavior and lifetime of a self-healing thermal barrier coating system (SH-TBC) and a benchmark conventional TBC system. The surrogate models are built using deterministic information from...

The thermal cyclic behavior of self-healing thermal barrier coatings (SH-TBC) is analyzed numerically to develop a lifetime prediction model. Representative microstructures are studied adopting a unit cell based multiscale modeling approach along with a simplified evolution model for the thermally-grown oxide layer (TGO) to study the...

The influence of microstructural pore defects on fracture behaviour of Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBC) is analysed using finite element analysis involving cohesive elements. A concurrent multiscale approach is utilised whereby the microstructural features of the TBC are explicitly resolved within a unit cell embedded in a larger domain. Within...

The effect of splat interfaces on the fracture behavior of air plasma-sprayed thermal barrier coatings (APS-TBC) is analyzed using finite element modeling involving cohesive elements. A multiscale approach is adopted in which the explicitly resolved top coat microstructural features are embedded in a larger domain. Within the computational...

The performance of a self-healing Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) containing dispersed healing particles depends crucially on the mismatch in thermomechanical properties between the healing particles and the TBC matrix. The present work systematically investigates this phenomenon based on numerical simulations using cohesive element-based finite...

A cohesive zone-based constitutive model, originally developed to model fracture, is extended to include a healing variable to simulate crack healing processes and thus recovery of mechanical properties. The proposed cohesive relation is a composite-type material model that accounts for the properties of both the original and the healing...
