This special issue includes a collection of papers on new experi- steel beam, and evaluated the modulus and plastic work evolu- mental methods, contact mechanics theories, numerical simu- tion by indentation. They correlated the grain microstructural lations, and applications on nanoindentation for a range of evolution with the modulus reduction and other property chang- materials, including brittle and ductile alloys, high wear resis- es as a function of loading cycles and attributed the reduction to tance coatings, geomaterials, biomaterials, nuclear fuels, ce- grain fragmentation and reorientation during fatigue. ramics, semiconductors, and electronic packaging materials.
