Boundary S matrices for the boundary tricritical Ising field theory (TIM), both with and without supersymmetry, have previously been proposed. Here we provide support for these S matrices by showing that the corresponding boundary entropies are consistent with the expected boundary flows. We develop the fusion procedure for boundary RSOS models, with which we derive exact inversion identities for the TIM. We confirm the TBA description of nonsupersymmetric boundary flows of Lesage et al. and we obtain corresponding descriptions of supersymmetric boundary flows.
