In this paper, a three-dimensional model of a semi-infinite layered body is used to predict steady-state maximum surface temperature rise at the sliding contact interface for the entire range of Peclet number. A set of semi-empirical solutions for maximum surface temperature problems of sliding layered bodies is obtained by using integral transform, finite element, heuristic and multivariable regression techniques. Two dimensionless parameters, A and Dp, which relate to coating thickness, contact size, sliding speed and thermal properties of both coating and substrate materials, are found to be the critical factors determining the effect of surface film on the surface temperature rise at a sliding contact interface. A semi-empirical solution for maximum surface temperature problems of homogeneous bodies, which covers the whole range of Peclet number, is also obtained.
