  author={Kaiyang Zeng and Lu Shen},
Abstract A new scheme for analysing nanoindentation load-displacement curves has been developed in previous work. The key feature of the new scheme is that Young's modulus and strain hardening can be derived from the unloading curve. This scheme uses a nonlinear curve-fitting method to fit the unloading curve. Three parameters, namely Young's modulus E, the strain-hardening parameter and the hardness parameter are directly derived from the curve fitting. A preliminary analysis shows that the… CONTINUE READING
