Indentation University - Session 9: Frame stiffness and Area Function
Two nanoindentation calibrations are accomplished by means of indentation experiments on a reference material. These are (1) the load-frame stiffness calibration, which quantifies the expected flexure in the test equipment, and (2) the area-function calibration which quantifies the precise shape of the indenter. This presentation explains (1) how these calibrations affect nanoindentation analysis, and (2) how the calibrations are accomplished.
