Findings from X.Z. Tang and Co-Researchers Advance Knowledge in Nanoindentation
September 8th, 2011
"Atomistic simulations were performed to study the nanoindentation for two kinds of FCC metals, aluminum and copper," scientists in Beijing, People's Republic of China report.
"Due to the higher stacking faults in aluminum than in copper, two different deformation mechanisms were observed in our simulation under exactly the same simulation condition. Aluminum and copper also showed different mechanical properties in the unloading stage," wrote X.Z. Tang and colleagues.
The researchers concluded: "The influence of stacking sequence along the loading direction on deformation mechanism was also investigated in this paper."
