This thesis documents some significant progress in improving the understanding of how complex multilayer surfaces respond under mixed rolling-sliding contact. By utilising advanced finite element simulation techniques a unique method for modelling multilayer contact was developed. Capable of simulating mixed rollingsliding contact in surfaces with up to eight layers; this method was applied to model the response of three complex coated systems commercially available from Oerlikon Balzers Coatings Ltd.
