Liu, Mao, Crystal plasticity and experimental studies of nano-indentation of aluminium and copper, Doctor of Philosophy thesis, School of Mechanical, Materials and Mechatronics Engineering, University of Wollongong, 2014. http://ro.uow.edu.au/theses/4219
In this thesis the mechanical behaviour and micro-texture evolution during nanoindentation deformation of single crystal aluminium has been numerically and experimentally investigated. The hardening parameters of single crystal copper have been estimated systematically by crystal plasticity finite element method (CPFEM) modelling.
