Non-destructive evaluation methods for determining a thickness of a coating layer on a turbine engine component

A method of non-destructively evaluating a thickness of a coating layer on a turbine engine component includes directing an acoustic wave into the turbine engine component, the acoustic wave including a frequency and a wavelength, receiving a return time-domain signal reflected from the turbine engine component, and transforming the time-domain signal into a frequency-domain signal. The method further includes subtracting a baseline signal from the frequency-domain signal and determining a local minimum frequency of the baseline-subtracted frequency-domain signal. ...
