Uniaxial compression of microand nanopillars is frequently used to elicit plastic size effects in single crystals. Uniaxial tensile experiments on nanoscale materials have the potential to enhance the understanding of the experimentally widely observed strength increase. Furthermore, these experiments allow for investigations into the in-strength and to help to study tension-compression asymmetry. The sample geometry might influence mechanical properties, and to investigate this dependence, we… CONTINUE READING
