The concept of functionally graded material (FGM) is currently actively explored in coating design for the purpose of eliminating the mismatch of thermomechanical properties at the interfaces and thus increasing the resistance of coatings to functional failure. In the present paper, three-dimensional elastic deformation of a functionally graded coating/substrate system of finite thickness subjected to mechanical loading is investigated. A comparative study of FGM versus homogeneous coating is conducted to examine the effect of the coating type on stress and displacement fields in the system.
