The short description of traditional methods of thermal sprayed coatings (TSC) structure characterization is given. The main parameters of structure and physico-mechanical properties of TSC, which influenced on their wear resistance are considered. The system approach for analyses of structure of TSC and the scheme of TSC properties prediction is proposed. The classification of structure levels of wear resistant coatings, obtained by thermal spraying, and models of their elements are proposed. The advisability of use of methods of structure-simulation modeling of TSC is shown.
