The deformation kinetics of sucrose crystals were evaluated using the Vickers microindentation technique. A (100) face of a crystal of sucrose was indented for varying lengths of time at temperatures ranging from 23 to 103°C, and the deformation kinetics analysis proposed by Verrall et al. (1) was employed to calculate the strain rate and stress from the indentation time and the size of the indentation. Two kinetic parameters, the activation volume and the activation energy, were calculated… CONTINUE READING
