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

Figure 6

A bilogarithmic plot of the hardness calculated according to (5) plotted against the measured indentation diagonal length. The slope of the plot equals 𝐷 𝐻 , a fractal dimension for hardness with respect to 𝑑 . In the insert, the fractal dimensional increment 𝐷 𝐻 is plotted as a function of l o g 𝑑 . Nonlinearity of the scaling fractal dimensional suggests multifractal behaviour.
