Existing indentation models (both analytical models and numerical analysis) show a linear relation between δr/δm and H/Er, where δr and δm are the residual depth and maximum depth, and Er and H are the reduced Young's modulus and hardness of the test material, respectively. However, in this paper it is shown that the relationship between δr/ δm and H/Er is actually nonlinear. Based on the analysis by Oliver and Pharr, a new relationship between δr/ δm and H/Er has been derived in different ways without any additional assumptions and verified by finite element analysis for a range of bulk materials. Further, with the aid of finite element simulations a new relationship between the irreversible work over total work and hardness over Young's modulus for materials with different work hardening behaviour has been derived which shows excellent agreement with experimental observations. © Carl Hanser Verlag GmbH & Co.
