The fatigue performance of conventional structural steel with an applied thermal barrier coating (TBC) was evaluated via cyclic bending. Tests were carried out for as-received and grit-blasted substrates as well as for samples with thermally sprayed bond coats and topcoats. Failure mechanisms were identified and changes in fatigue resistance were assessed based on results obtained for different loading amplitudes supplemented by fractographic analysis.
