Profilometry-based Indentation Plastometry of Hardox Steel Samples with WC Inserts

This investigation relates to two types of sample supplied by Energy Densification Systems. These were both a shaped component of Hardox steel, with and without a cermet insert brazed into it. Via PIP testing it was possible to obtain stress-strain relationships for local areas of the component. The heat treatment associated with the brazing process (which was not revealed to PLX) induced significant changes in the stress/strain responses of all locations.

Detection of Localised Variations in Plasticity Parameters in an Aluminium Forging.

In this study we use PIP testing to spatially map the variations in mechanical properties across a large forged aluminum component.
