An analysis of structure and characterization of most bulk materials and coatings controlled by interface was performed. The performance of the bulk materials was influenced by surface grain and phase boundaries. A method for modelling the hardness/substrate systems based on bulk materials and surface deformation contributions to the work of indentation was introduced. The model used few physically reasonable parameters to predict the hardness of a very complicated coating system.
