The design of successful wear-resistant coating architectures requires simultaneous consideration of several factors. In particular, coatings which consist of CrN layers of varying thickness separated by thin Cr layers have the highest wear resistance for both aluminum and steel substrate materials, but a methodology was needed to optimize both the overall coating design and the individual layer thicknesses. This paper provides an initial step toward the development of future application specific coating designs and improved coating design methodologies.
