The new coupler has a limited increase in tip radius over pin-on mounting.
The topics include the nanometer-scale mechanical behavior of grain boundaries, the influence of nano-indenter tip radius on the estimation of the elastic modulus, thermo-mechanical behavior at nanoscale and size effects in shape memory alloys, in situ spectroscopy and modeling of deformation behavior in nanoscale interfacial materials, and modeling the dislocation-void interaction in a dislocation dynamics simulation.
The calibration was performed before (on the silicon chip of the tip radius calibrating sample) and after the nanoindentations (on the silicon chip of the spring constant reference sample).
The tip radius is shorter than the standard bucket to keep the breakout forces high, but is long enough to form a V shape that is structurally sound for ripping and prying.
Exact compensation for the probe tip radius requires that the measured coordinates of the center of the probe be increased by a vector whose magnitude is equal to the probe radius and whose direction goes from the measured coordinates of the center of the probe to the point of contact with the surface.
The tests were carried out on both specimens using diamond Rockwell indenter with the tip radius of 200 [mu]m.
In designing the convolute, the control dimensions are the tip thickness, tip radius, root radius, convolute height and convolute width or pitch.

5 mm range and ensures that the stylus tip radius is correct through all points of contact with curved or inclined features on a component.
A crack acts as a lever arm for the stress so that the singular stress at the tip is proportional to the crack length and inversely proportional to the square-root of the tip radius (provided this has a meaning).
