Abstract

A practical setup to measure spallation of protective surface layers by thermal cycling using TLA (thin layer activation) is discussed, illustrated by the study of an advanced thermal barrier coating. TLA has a direct relation to the material loss and shows a significant increase in sensitivity over other test methods and can, therefore, provide a more reliable assessment of the service lives of technical components.
