Analysis of the Indentation Size Effect in the Microhardness Measurements in B6O
A bilogarithmic plot of the hardness calculated according to (5) plotted against the measured indentation diagonal length. The slope of the plot equals , a fractal dimension for hardness with respect to . In the insert, the fractal dimensional increment is plotted as a function of . Nonlinearity of the scaling fractal dimensional suggests multifractal behaviour.
