Introduction to instrumented indentation testing

Introduction to instrumented indentation testing

Indentation testing is one of the most common technique used to characterize surface material properties such as hardness and elastic modulus. Over the last few decades, nanoindentation or instrumented indentation technique was developed and used for testing mechanical properties of thin coatings and small volumes down to nanoscale level. Goal of the webinar is to introduce the basics of nanoindentation technique and show a few typical applications in various industries.
