In this paper, the authors use computational tools to simulate thermal and mechanical processes involved in plasma spraying that lead to crack formation and delamination. The substrate-coating system is represented by a metal strip (120 x 20 x 2 mm) and a ceramic layer with a thickness of 0.06 mm. The transient heat transport problem and stress-deformation state of the 3D sample is solved via stress relaxation due to plastic deformation and distributed displacements or cracking. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
