Microindentation studies in coupled materials systems
Date of Issue2001
School of Mechanical & Production Engineering
The purpose of this project is to examine the indention response of coupled materials systems, namely piezoelectric materials and shape memory alloys. A first order coupling exists between mechanical stress and electrical potential in the first materials. As a result, they have been extensively used in sensor, ultrasonic transducer, and actuator applications.
