Summary

Residual stress in a ZrO2-Y2O3 ceramic coating resulting from the plasma spraying operation is calculated. The calculations were done using the finite element method. Both thermal and mechanical analysis were performed. The resulting residual stress field was compared to the measurements obtained by Hendricks and McDonald.1 Reasonable agreement between the predicted and measured moment occurred. However, the resulting stress field is not in pure bending.
