The application parameters of multilayer nanocoating and the sequence of its layers are shown. The values of wear and microhardness of the hardened and serial rings are given. The increase in wear resistance of the hardened product is shown to be 12 times in weight and 4 times in the degree of increase in the size of its friction surface. A method for evaluating properties using the mathematical operators of the laplacian and divergences in their different variations is proposed. A correlation between the properties of the results of tests for friction and wear with using a mathematical description of structure formation was revealed. The minimal difference of the friction zone and the initial surface of the hardened ring, which does not exceed 16 %, is revealed. The difference between the initial surface and the friction zone in the serial ring is shown, which reaches up to 42&nbsp;% on average in terms of indicators. A substantial deviation of the values of the friction zone mathematical operators of the serial ring from the TiN/CrN hardened by ion-plasma nanocoating was confirmed, which in some cases reaches up to 42&nbsp;% on average.</p>}, number={2/92}, journal={Problems of Tribology}, author={Skoblo, T.S. and Sidashenko, A.I. and Maltsev, T.V. and Romanchenko, V.N.}, year={2019}, month={Jul.}, pages={20–24} }
