NANOINDENTATION | NANO HARDNESS TESTING

Mechanical Testers | Lab Services | Nano Module | Micro Module | Application Notes

 

Nanoindentation Process:
During Nanoindentation, an indenter tip is driven into the sample by applying an increasing load up to a targeted value. The measured load is then gradually decreased until partial, or complete, relaxation of the sample has occurred. The load and displacement are recorded continuously throughout this process to produce a load-displacement curve. Adding a pause at maximum load allows studying of creep properties. Other loading modes are possible including constant load multi-cycle for measuring fatigue or plastic-elastic deformation; and increasing load multi-cycle for obtaining properties versus depth; and Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) used to measure visco-elastic properties of materials.

 

Standards:

• ASTM E384

• ASTM G171

• ASTM E2546

• ASTM B933
