Abstract

Superalloy coatings of the CoMoCrSi family (e.g. Tribaloy® T800) are applied to mitigate wear effects at high temperature. These coatings are extensively used on the contact surfaces of the shroud of turbine blades. If severe wear occurs on these contact surfaces the blade interlocking decreases, reducing the stiffness of the assembly, altering its dynamic behaviour, and increasing the risk of fatigue failure. Fretting is the expected damage mechanics on these mating surfaces. The study presented in this paper investigates the fretting damage mechanism of interfaces coated with CoMoCrSi alloys. The experimental plan includes fifteen combinations of the test parameters: two contact geometries, three deposition processes, four temperatures, three normal loads and three strokes. Wear at different number of cycles was also explored. Moreover, two types of contact geometries were investigated, namely point contact (sphere-on-flat) and flat-on-flat. The friction coefficient was computed using the hysteresis loops measured during the fretting tests. The topography of the contact surfaces was measured at different fretting wear cycles to estimate the volume loss. Wear grooves were observed by scanning electron microscopy. Results of point contact experiments at room temperature exhibited a steady friction coefficient independent of the normal load. Wear volumes showed a sharp increasing in wear rate at high dissipated energy while the trend was linear at lower dissipated energy. Oxidation was found more dependent on substrate than on temperature, stroke and wear cycles. Wear volumes and wear rate on flat-on-flat specimens coated with welded T800 were higher at 400 C than at room temperature and at high temperature (800 C). At room temperature, wear volumes of welded T800 applied by single layer were much higher than in dual layer. At room temperature and at low dissipated energy the wear rate of the point contact geometry was lower than flat-on-flat. At high energy, the wear rate of point contact tends to the flat-on-flat wear rate.
