Examining the Effect of Pileup on the Accuracy of Sharp Indentation Testing

Figure 9

Influence of on the projected contact area. The projected contact area is normalized by , the area calculated by the indenter geometry function. The solid icons stand for the true projected contact area derived from finite element models, while the hollow icons represent the projected contact area calculated by Oliver and Pharr model [1].
