The goals of this project were to: determine the effect of shadowing in an EB-PVD process and support and document the development of a TBC thickness prediction model. EB-PVD tab array shadowing experiments were performed and a light box was constructed and tested using light intensity to model TBC thickness. Thickness trends found in several previous tab array experiments were analyzed. A P&W 4000 blade was coated to calibrate the TBC prediction model.
