Thermal Barrier Coatings, Second Edition plays a critical role in counteracting the effects of corrosion and degradation of exposed materials in high-temperature environments such as gas turbine and aero-engines. This updated edition reviews recent advances in the processing and performance of thermal barrier coatings, as well as their failure mechanisms. Novel technologies for the manufacturing of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) such as plasma spray-physical vapor deposition and suspension plasma spray, are covered, as well as severe degradation of TBCs caused by CMAS attack. In addition to discussions of new materials and technologies, an outlook about next generation TBCs, including T/EBCs is discussed.

This edition will provide the fundamental science and engineering of thermal barrier coatings for researchers in the field of TBCs, as well as students looking for a tutorial.

Key Features

  • Includes coverage of emerging materials, such as rare-earth doped ceramics
  • Presents the latest on plasma spray-physical vapor deposition and suspension (solution precursor)
  • Discusses the degradation of TBCs caused by CMAS attack and its protection
  • Looks at thermally environmental barrier coatings, interdiffusion and diffusion barrier


Professional engineers in such industries as energy production, aerospace, and chemical engineering as well as academic researchers in materials
