By Robert Lacombe

Adhesion dimension tools: idea and perform offers functional details at the most vital size options, their detailed merits and downsides, and the choice of the correct approach for a given program. It contains worthwhile details and formulae on adhesion comparable issues reminiscent of driver formulae for numerous modes of delamination, tools for estimating rigidity buildup, and fabric estate information in aid of again of the envelope calculations. the writer provides optimum tools and instruments used for measuring the adhesion of coatings and skinny movies in addition to atmosphere applicable adhesion energy specifications. He presents a close evaluate of makes use of, implementation, and disadvantages for qualitative, semi-quantitative, and entirely quantitative adhesion size ideas and self-loading structures. The booklet discusses thermal-mechanical habit evaluate, the appliance of the continuum idea of solids, and fracture mechanics, highlighting valuable measures of adhesion power comparable to tension depth issue and pressure strength free up cost. It offers particular examples of ways adhesion trying out is performed in perform, together with the peel try out, the scratch try out, and the pull try, and describes the dimension of residual tension in a coating or different laminate constitution. The ebook concludes with examples taken from the author's event within the microelectronics and comprises numerous appendices for having a look up uncomplicated formulae and fabric estate information for acting daily calculations. Adhesion dimension tools is a perfect addition for classes on fabrics technology, mechanics of fabrics, or engineering layout oflaminate constructions on the complex undergraduate or graduate point.

Example text

The stylus tip. Different results will be obtained depending on the stylus material (steel, tungsten carbide, or diamond) and the precise topography of the tip region that first contacts the coating surface. Later investigators expanded on the scratch test not only to include more sophisticated instrumentation for controlling the load program of the stylus and advanced microscopy for observing the scratch track, but also to couple the scratch method with acoustic spectroscopy, by which the sound vibrations generated by the stylus are detected and recorded at the same time that the scratch track is formed.

This can be accomplished in a number of ways, but the most popular is the use of etchants, which will erode the substrate material and not attack the coating. For coatings on silicon substrates, all the methods of microelectronic lithography are available to etch holes in the silicon and construct the various structures required for tests such as the island blister configuration. However, to use these methods a wafer fabrication facility must be available to carry out the involved series of steps required to construct the desired structures.

Problem is treated in detail in Chapters 3 and 4, which cover the fundamentals of continuum theory and fracture mechanics required to understand this type of behavior. The four-point bend test is favored largely by those interested in obtaining fully quantitative information on the adhesion strength of coatings by taking advantage of the relatively simple beam mechanics involved in the fracture analysis of this problem. In particular, Evans and co-workers used this test extensively to study the adhesion of a variety of metals to alumina (Al2O3) substrates.
