Longquan Shao, Danyu Jiang and Jianghong Gong Nanoindentation Characterization of the Hardness of Zirconia Dental Ceramics Advanced Engineering Materials 15
Nanoindentation tests were conducted on four commercial zirconia dental ceramics. For each material, the measured nanohardness exhibits significant indentation size effect. The so-called load-independent nanohardness was determined based on a second-order polynomial analysis of the variation of the contact depth with the peak load. Finally, a brief discussion was conducted on the reliability and the applicability of the determined load-independent nanohardness.
