Nanomechanics for Coatings and Engineering Surfaces: Test Methods, Development Strategies, Modeling Approaches, and Applications provides readers with an array of best practices for nanoindentation measurements as well as related small-scale test methods and how to translate test results into the development of improved coatings. A core theme of the book is explaining to readers exactly how, when, and why the nanomechanical properties of engineered surfaces relate to their wear resistance.

The book starts with chapters that introduce the development and importance of nanomechanical testing and linkages between wear resistance and the mechanical properties of coatings before moving into discussions of various experimental methods and techniques, such as nanoindentation, continuous stiffness measurements, nano-scratch methods, high-temperature testing, nano-impact testing, and more. Other sections discuss modeling approaches such as finite element analysis, atomistic and molecular dynamics, and analytical methods. Design strategies and industrial applications are covered next, with a final section looking at trends and future directions.
