High Temperature Oxidation of Bond Coats in Thermal Barrier Systems

R. PeraldiD. Monceau


The isothermal oxidation of bond coats composed of vacuum plasma sprayed (VPS) MCrAlY (NiCoCrAlYTa and CoNiCrAlY) or palladium modified nickel aluminides (NiPd + APVS) was studied in several oxygen partial pressures (105, 1 and 10-5 Pa), with two heating rates (20 and 60K/min) at different temperatures (900, 1000 and 1100°C). For MCrAlY coatings, Arrhenius plots of the parabolic rate constants show a kinetic transition below 1000°C. This could be linked to a transition from Al2O3 to Cr2O3 scale growth. Lower oxygen partial pressures induce lower parabolic rate constants at 900°C. This leads to the assumption that scales grown at low oxygen partial pressures are still formed of alumina at 900°C. Nevertheless, these results could not be confirmed by chemical analysis (EDS, XPS). The two tested heating rates show no influence on the oxidation kinetics of both MCrAlY coatings. In the case of aluminide, for low oxygen partial pressures, the parabolic kinetics are reduced of one order of magnitude (for PO2 =105 to 1 Pa) and correspond to a thinner scale of a-alumina. Also, the heating rate modifies the parabolic kinetics (i.e. after the transient stage) and the total weight gains for all oxidation temperatures, with higher parabolic ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
