The investigation under this contract was initiated in June 1975 to provide some understanding of the mechanisms of deterioration of plasma sprayed coatings by erosion andor corrosion. It is apparent that such an understanding will require an extensive long range investigation covering a wide range of coatings and of erosive and corrosive environments. However, in order to allow the problem areas to be defined, attention has been focussed on a single ceramic coating, alumina, and a single metallic coating, aluminum, both on steel substrates. In the initial phase of this program, emphasis has been on the structural and mechanical characterization of the coating itself with some preliminary studies of their response to cavitation.
