Verification of radial displacement correction effect in instrumented indentation testing

Y. Tanaka, Y. Seino, K. Hattori


The radial displacement had been ignored in the analysis of unloading curve of instrumented indentation test. There are two representative methods of radial displacement correction, proposed by Hay et al. [J. Mater. Res., 14, 2296, (1999)] and Chudoba-Jennett [J. Phys. D, 41, 215407, (2008)]. In this study, we examine the effect of radial displacement corrections in finite element analysis and experiments.
