    Diamond-like carbon coatings have previously been studied as a protective coating for fretting wear protection providing low friction and low wear. H/E ratio has been used as a metric to rank coating performance in sliding wear, but this has not been applied to gross-slip fretting. Three DLC coating systems (a-C:H, Si-a-C:H, a-C:H:W top layers) on hardened M2 tool steel were studied using a bespoke electrodynamic shaker with a 10 mm 52100 steel ball as the counterface. This work has shown that H/E ratio can be used to predict wear performance in gross-slip fretting; the highest H/E ratio a-C:H performed best with low friction and wear.
