abstract Sliding contact mechanics is used to account for the net increase of the bearing capacity of high wear-resistant CVD diamond coatings when an outer layer of a DLC lubricant film is deposited on their top surface. Experimental results, namely the critical failure load, taken from reciprocating ball-on-plate tribological testing of such DLC/diamond bilayers, are on the basis of this statement. DC magnetron sputtering was used to grow thin DLC lubricant coatings (non-hydrogenated and hydrogenated varieties) on the top of CVD diamond films (microcrystalline and nanocrystalline types). The application of the von Mises maximum yield parameter (root J(2)) criterion demonstrates to be an adequate method for designing low-friction and high-bearing capacity systems for high-demanding tribological applications. Calculation of root J(2)supports that the most significant increase observed on the coatings' bearing capacity (from 20 N to 60 N) takes place when microcrystalline diamond is coated by hydrogenated DLC that decreases the initial friction coefficient peak (from 0.76 to 0.41).
