In this chapter, we present a numerical method of thermo-mechanical analysis of the TBC systems. It can be used as a simulation of the whole TBCs systems behaviour or as a part of a large simulation as a submodel. Moreover, the method can be applied for calibrating material data that concerns damage evolution laws.
