Short Course on Instrumented Indentation Techniques_Part I
This Online course is focused on providing the “bridge” from conventional Indentation techniques to the current state-of-the-art Instrumented Indentation. It is designed to introduce instrumented indentation as a logical extension to traditional techniques and it combines theory with practical experimentation. We will be covering the following topics :
- Understand the basics of instrumented indentation testing and its use in conventional indentation techniques
- Ability to design and perform indentation experiments which are suited to the sample material and its surface characteristics
- Recognize unusual material behaviors and understand how to adapt experimental parameters
- Interpret indentation data in order to extract meaningful and valid values of mechanical properties
Trainer: Dr. Chintan Bhatt
Dr. Chintan M. Bhatt obtained his Ph.D. degree in Instrumentation and Applied Physics from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, having more than 10 years of experience leading global projects in the field of measurement and instrumentation technology for characterisation of material. He has co-authored 14 research papers in International Journals and Conferences. He has a vast experience in conducting workshops and user trainings, providing extensive knowledge about nano-surface property characterisation. Dr. Bhatt is currently working as the National Product Line manager for material characterisation (Surface property characterisation group) at Anton Paar India.
