Prediction of the Bilinear Stress-Strain Curve of Engineering Material by Nanoindentation Test
Instrumented indentation is widely used to probe the elastic and plastic properties of engineering materials. Finite Element Method (FEM) has been widely used for numerical simulation of indentation tests on bulk and film material in order to analyze its deformation response. This study proposed an improved technique to determine the stress-strain curve of bulk material. FEM in conjunction with an abductive network is used to predict the stress-strain relationship of bilinear elastic-plastic material from the nanoindentation test’s force-displacement curve.
