The regularities and spatial distribution of multiple cracking of a nanocoating are investigated. It is found that in the cracking zones the relaxation of the stresses accumulated in the coating takes place; moreover, the intensity of its failure is determined by the structural level of defect accumulation. A new algorithm for a digital identification of the elements of a crack network in a nanocoating is proposed, and its adequacy is checked.
