Highly cooled turbine blades undergo very high thermal gradients during rapid engine idle-max-idle cycling. Traditional isothermal fatigue data are often insufficient for predicting service lives. A complete set of high temperature tests, in the range of , was performed on single crystal alloy CMSX-4. The test program comprised tensile, creep, low cycle fatigue, and thermomechanical fatigue (TMF) tests. In particular the cycle time for TMF was 3 min, aiming to simulate the real high-power transient conditions in aircraft engines. Clockwise and counterclockwise diamond cycle types were applied on bare and coated specimens to investigate their influence on the fatigue limit. The comparison of the results obtained with the available ones from open literature is discussed.
