    The residual stresses in a Pt-diffused gamma/gamma' bond coat after oxidation were investigated using the curvature and X-ray sin(2)psi, techniques. Contrary to the beta-(Ni,Pt)A1, the Pt-diffused gamma/gamma' bond coat was in compression at room temperature due to a lower coefficient of thermal expansion. The stresses measured by the curvature method mainly came from the thermal misfit between the bond coat and the substrate, which decreased as the oxidation time increased. However, the stresses measured by the X-ray sin(2)psi, method exhibited an opposite trend. This discrepancy can be attributed to the different origins of the stress evaluated by different techniques. It demonstrated that the lattice misfit between the gamma and gamma' phases exerted a significant influence on the microstress in the bond coat, and thus restricted the use of X-ray to measure the stress in the Pt-diffused gamma/gamma' bond coat. In addition, the effect of stresses on the texture and rumpling behavior of the bond coat was also discussed. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
