High cycle (>106 cycles) fatigue (HCF) behavior of thick thermal barrier coatings (TTBC’s) was examined for applied stresses near the compressive strength of the material. Test data were obtained on four coating systems: two base materials in the unsealed and CrO2 dip sealed conditions. Free standing tubular specimens were evaluated. The data show that compressive fatigue limits exist for the four coating systems at room temperature (RT) and sealing with CrO2 improves RT fatigue life. Test results also show the ratio of the peak cyclic stress, at 105 cycles, to ultimate compressive strength (UCS) of the Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) tubular specimens approaches 0.90 at R = 0.6 (R = minimum/maximum compressive stress). Residual UCS increases were observed after fatigue run-outs at elevated temperatures (5 at 700°C and 1 at 400°C) for both YSZ and the cermet. Ratchetting with cyclic hardening was observed during fatigue with deformation occurring primarily in the initial portion of the high cycle fatigue life of the specimens.
