Examples

  • In the new paper, partly funded by the Army and the Department of Defense, Ortiz and her colleagues measured the mechanical properties of the shell by subjecting it at a nanoscale to pressure applied with a diamond-tipped machine called an "indenter".

  • Using a precise diamond indenter equipped with a vibrating rod to press on the test surface, under a fixed load, the MET-U1A measures hardness by applying ultrasonic vibrations and analysing the resulting damping effect.

  • The indentation results are (a) not directly the modulus of either phase, (b) strongly dependent on the indenter location relative to the phases, and (c) for stiff reinforcement in a compliant matrix, largely reflecting the compliant phase modulus due to the "springs in series" sort of argument where the deformation is largely accommodated by the most compliant link in the chain.

    iMechanica - Comments

  • When the punch indents the gel, the region in the center bulges and in doing so its surface undergoes an approximately uniform biaxial or uniaxial strain depending on the shape of the indenter.

  • Nanovea announced today a breakthrough development in Nanoindentation testing by combining advanced image pattern recognition capabilities to the most advanced nano-indenter for quality control applications.
