The stresses, strains, and deformations produced by repeated, two-dimensional rolling-sliding contacts are analyzed both in the coated layer of ceramics SiC and in the substrate of two types of steels using a finite element method. Rolling and sliding are simulated by translating an appropriate set of normal and tangential surface tractions across the surface of an elastic-plastic model. A peak-pressure to shear-strength ratio of p0/k = 5 and normal to tangential force ratios of T/P = 0.2 are examined. The effect of thickness of the coated layer on the mechanical behavior of the substrate is discussed.
