Modelling Thermal Conductivity of Porous Thermal Barrier Coatings
AbstractThermal conductivity of porous thermal barrier coatings was evaluated using a newly developed five-phase model. It was demonstrated that porosities distributed in coating strongly affect thermal conductivity. The decisive reason for this change in thermal conductivity can be traced back to defect morphology and its orientation, depending on the coating deposition technique and process parameters used during deposition. In this paper, the Bruggeman’s two-phase model was used as a reference, and a five-phase model was developed to evaluate the thermal conductivity of porous coatings. This approach uses microstructural details of the shape, size, orientation and volumetric fraction of defects of coatings as input parameters. The proposed model can predict thermal conductivity values better than the previous two-phase model. View Full-Text
