Nano-Indentation Measurement for Heat Resistant Alloys at Elevated Temperatures in Inert Atmosphere

MDR Open Deposited

A new approach of nano-indentation measurements at elevated temperatures has been developed to evaluate a temperature-dependent mechanical behavior of heat resistant alloys on a submicron scale, where the measurement is conducted in an inert atmosphere to prevent the surface oxidation of a sample and heat an indenter passively. The developed approach enables us to perform nano-indentation testing with a diamond indenter in the temperature range of 23~800 °C. The developed approach has been applied to gamma single-phase single-crystal of a nickel-based superalloy. Then the degradations of the sample surface and the indenter tip have been discussed in this case.
