Title: Computer simulation of nanoindentation into carbon materials
Authors: Henkel, Matthias J.
Issue Date: 1999
Publisher: © M.J. Henkel
Abstract: A molecular dynamics simulation is set up to analyse the nanoindentation process on graphite and diamond. A model for the indenter and its movement is developed. Different potential descriptions for graphite are tested as well as different surfaces for diamond. Results are analysed in terms of force–distance curves and lattice distortion. A comparison with experimental results is also made. The use of parallel programming has also been examined.
