Analysis of the Indentation Size Effect in the Microhardness Measurements in B6O

Article English OPEN
Ronald Machaka; Trevor E. Derry; Iakovos Sigalas; Mathias Herrmann;

The Vickers microhardness measurements of boron suboxide (B6O) ceramics prepared by uniaxial hot-pressing was investigated at indentation test loads in the range from 0.10 to 2.0 kgf. Results from the investigation indicate that the measured microhardness exhibits an in... View more
