The cohesive strengths of environmental barrier coatings applied to silicon carbide substrates were characterized using a compression test containing a strip of coating along a portion of the gage length. The substrate sample design and test fixture are similar to that described in ASTM D 695-96. The theory needed to extract the cohesive/adhesive strengths from the data is presented. The results of the compression tests are compared to the standard test method for the determination of the cohesive/adhesive strengths by the tension-adhesion test (TAT) (ASTM C 633-79). The preliminary results indicate that the onset of failure in the compression tests can be correlated with TAT test results, allowing for the extraction of the cohesive strength of the coating. For this system, this strength was found to be 15–20 MPa. The compression test has the advantage that it can be conducted at elevated temperature without the use of adhesives and, furthermore, is not limited by the adhesive strengths of polymeric adhesives.
