Richard Waudby was employed by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd and joined the VTT Graduate School in August 2011 for a period of four years. The topic for his PhD work was “Empirical assessment and modelling of the impact wear of thick composite coatings”. The work was supervised by Professor Allan Matthews at Sheffield University, UK and Professor Kenneth Holmberg at the VTT. The PhD work was interrupted in the winter 2015-16 after Richard left VTT and later that spring he informed professor Matthews that he does not intend to finish the work. We publish here the latest version of his PhD work draft with Richard’s permission even if it is not complete to make the results available for further analysis and to be benefited by the research community.
