Determination of material properties of thin films and coatings using indentation tests: a review

Determination of material properties of thin films and coatings using indentation tests: a review This paper presents a review of the mechanical characterisation of thin film and coated systems using indentation tests. The potential in assessing mechanical properties of films and coatings using indentation tests has received a great deal of attention since this knowledge is vital for predicting their performance. The relevant theoretical background is discussed. Experimental work, numerical studies and data interpretation techniques for indentation on single bulk materials and thin films are discussed. Surface conditions, indentation depths and indentation size effects for indentation tests on thin films and coated systems are discussed. Data interpretation methods for indentation on films and coated systems are reviewed with a discussion on their limitations. Other studies in this field concerning the substrate effects and critical indentation depth ratios are also discussed. Suggestions for future experimental work and data interpretation are provided. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Materials Science Springer Journals

Abstract

This paper presents a review of the mechanical characterisation of thin film and coated systems using indentation tests. The potential in assessing mechanical properties of films and coatings using indentation tests has received a great deal of attention since this knowledge is vital for predicting their performance. The relevant theoretical background is discussed. Experimental work, numerical studies and data interpretation techniques for indentation on single bulk materials and thin films are discussed. Surface conditions, indentation depths and indentation size effects for indentation tests on thin films and coated systems are discussed. Data interpretation methods for indentation on films and coated systems are reviewed with a discussion on their limitations. Other studies in this field concerning the substrate effects and critical indentation depth ratios are also discussed. Suggestions for future experimental work and data interpretation are provided.
