Fracture Toughness Measurements Using Instrumented Scratch and Indentation Techniques


In Material Science, fracture toughness is defined as the ability of a material to inhibit crack propagation and resist brittle fracture. A material’s toughness is an important part of material selection since component fracture can often lead to catastrophic failure of a system. In this webinar two different types of techniques are discussed in order to measure fracture mechanics in hard materials.
