Nanocrystalline diamond films were deposited on cemented tungsten carbide substrates using hot filament chemical vapor deposition (HFCVD) method, and their tribological properties were investigated by friction experiments and classical molecular dynamics simulations. The friction tests were performed on a ball-on-plate type reciprocating friction tester under various normal loads and sliding velocities conditions; the experimental results suggested that the friction coefficient of diamond films showed increasing tendency with the growing normal load and sliding velocity. Furthermore, classical molecular dynamics simulations were conducted to investigate the changes in atomic scale friction behaviors of diamond films under extremely high normal load and sliding velocity conditions, the atomistic sliding mechanism was also discussed in this study.
