The approaches of contact mechanics are used to evaluate the evolution of the contact characteristics in wear process of inhomogeneous bodies (coated bodies, two-phase composition, bodies with inclusions, etc.). The mathematical model is formulated and used to study the kinetics of the wear process depending on the parameters of inhomogeneity such as size and density of inclusions, waviness at the coating-substrate interface, local hardening parameters, etc.
