Tribological coatings for mechanical components such as bearings and gears can experience failure occurring at the surface for highly localized contact conditions. In the present study, a finite element analysis (FEA) model was developed to study the stress distribution and deformation of tungsten carbide reinforced amorphous hydrocarbon coatings with and without columnar microstructures under nanoindentation. Results show that the microstructure of these tribological coatings significantly influences the stress distribution and deformation under heavily loaded conditions.
