Experimental investigations of the micro cracking behavior of a coating-substrate structure were carried out in-situ with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). An anodized coating layer was deposited on an AZ91D substrate by the galvanize pulse method. Results indicated that the failure mechanism of the coating-substrate structure was due to a mismatch of micro deformation between the coating and substrate. The micro deformations induced by different failure models were cracking, spalling, or delamination. The failure models were validated using theoretical, experimental, and digital image correlation methods. The critical stress of failure can be evaluated by measuring the biaxial stress.

A nice MS reporting the in-situ investigation on cracking of coating/substrate interface for PEO formed coating on Mg alloy.
