Abstract: Finite element analysis (FEA) was performed to analyze residual stresses development within thermal barrier coatings system consisting vacuum plasma sprayed CoNiCrAlY bondcoat and atmospheric plasma sprayed yttria partially stabilized zirconia topcoat on the GH3128 nickel-based superalloy substrates. The effect of substrate preheating process on the residual stress generated at the bondcoat/topcoat interface was evaluated. The results show that substrate preheating process reduces tensile stresses within the coating. To provide quantitatively comparison to the computational results, hole-drilling method was used to evaluate the residual stresses. The measured residual stresses are in agreement with the numerical simulation results obtained from FEA.
