... performance. For TBCs and EBCs, the elastic modulus, mechanical strength, and toughness values are extremely important in predicting failure behavior under stress and strain conditions, mainly for modeling purposes. Sand and/or volcanic ash particles are molten in the hot zones of turbines and deposited over...
