- Fracture mechanics approach to the adhesion of flame and plasma sprayed coatings
- Berndt, Christopher C.; McPherson, Reginald R.
- A fracture mechanics approach is applied to measuring the adhesion of plasma and flame sprayed coatings of mild steel, nickel-aluminum composite and alumina applied to a mild steel substrate. The experimental method essentially involves incorporating the coating into either a double torsion or double cantilever beam geometry. The testing technique described is applicable to adhesion of measurements on other metal-ceramic coatings.
