Crack behaviour at the interface of a surface layer applied on a steel substrate by laser cladding
An influence of the bi-material interface between a steel substrate and a thin protective layer applied through laser cladding was investigated. A range of elastic properties and thicknesses of the layer were considered to cover the behaviour of a short crack in the selected materials such as bronze, nickel or cobalt alloys. The special case of the crack terminating directly at the interface was investigated, which is connected to the necessity of application of generalized approaches of linear elastic fracture mechanics. The results contribute to better understanding of fracture response of selected materials and to a more reliable decision on choosing a proper material of the protective layer.
