Loading force at 500 mN was applied in a progressively increasing in 15 seconds; following indices were determined: Martens hardness (HM), Martens hardness from the slope of the increasing force/indentation depth curve (HMs), indentation hardness (HIT), elastic intentation modulus ([E.
The Backreef-1 proposed drilling and evaluation operations as approved by the DMP and the prognosed Backreef-1 time versus depth curve using the Hunt Energy Rig 3 are presented in Figures 2 and 3 (see link at the bottom of the release).
It is worth to mention that the apparent dependence of elastic modulus on penetration depth is much likely an artifact arising from the fitting of contact radius versus penetration depth curves introducing an apparent dependence on penetration depth, because a considerable dependence is shown also by the thick film (black series) at low penetration depth, which is certainly not due to substrate effect.
