Indentation Plastometry is a novel testing technology that extracts stress/strain curve’s from a 3-minute indentation test. The method uses a combination of testing hardware and an inverse finite element method to determine mechanical property data in a way that’s faster and more versatile than conventional methods.

In this talk you will learn about the underlying methodology and how it can be applied characterize the strength of a broad range of metallic materials.

A case study exploring the use of Indentation Plastometry to characterize the plasticity of a Aluminum forging will be presented.
