The aim of this study was to investigate potential weight savings using multi-layer blade containment systems for turboengines. The association of an external ductile layer with an internal hard layer could provide a good ductility of the armor with the capability to withstand the perforation of high kinetic projectiles. Comparisons between several thick deposits obtained by the vacuum plasma spray process were performed using a Charpy impact testing machine. Mechanical and structural characterisations of these two-layer structures were performed and compared to the behavior of monolithic ones. Heat treatment effects were also considered.
