Indentation University - Session 4: How to Test 1018 Steel by Nanoindentation
Low-carbon steels are the first option when designing with steel. They offer good machinability and excellent weldability. To some extent, the strength and ductility can be manipulated by various thermal and mechanical processes, such as working, annealing, and carburization. This session is a live demonstration of standardized nanoindentation with the KLA iMicro platform to characterize cold-drawn 1018 steel. Ms. Hay demonstrates sample preparation, instrument configuration, test specification, execution and data interpretation.
