Final Report - TOPPCOAT (Towards design and processing of advanced, competitive thermal barrier coating systems)

Project ID: 516149
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


This is the final report for the TOPPCOAT project which received funding the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). Its main aim was to make significant improvements to Thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems by using advanced bonding concepts in combination with additional protective and functional coatings.

The report begins with a list of participants and goes on with providing the description of the project, namely its objectives, an overview of the scientific approaches and methods adopted and further information regarding the microstructure, the physical background of the proposed crack initiation concept and the design of the interface structure. The report proceeds with providing an overview of the work performed and the results achieved in the eight Work packages (WPs). It covers afterwards the impact of the project and concludes with the website of the project.
