Anisotropy of stress-strain behavior, fracture toughness, and fatigue crack growth rate of Ti6Al4V deposited by cold spray using nitrogen was studied. For that, flat deposits were tested with stress acting in the in-plane directions and tubular deposits were tested in the out-of-plane stress directions. In all tests, unified small-size specimens were used. It was shown that for the in-plane stress, the deposits can be considered isotropic, whereas the out-of-plane stress led to significantly lower values of the measured properties. The obtained results were related to fractography and microstructural analysis. While a combination of trans-particle and inter-particle fracture determined the fatigue properties in the near-threshold regime, at higher loads, inter-particle fracture was dominant. It was also shown that the different particle-to-stress orientations influenced the resulting fatigue and static properties.
