The objective of the proposed research was to create hard layers on metallic surfaces in boundary-lubricated sliding and to investigate their tribological behavior. In addition, the goal was to investigate the basic mechanism of friction of lubricated metallic surfaces. We have investigated the following aspects a Experimental investigation of the tribological behavior of metallic and coated surfaces in boundary lubrication and b Finite Element Analysis of friction and wear of the coated surfaces, and the delamination process at the interface.
