Abstract

Instrumented indentation of a high purity Fe surface with unresolved surface deformation due to mechanical polishing is compared to the same grain surface annealed at increasing time and temperature. The differences in indentation size effect behavior with annealing are correlated with hardness and electron backscatter diffraction measurements as independent measures of surface layer deformation. It is found that the Nix Gao plot evolves from non-linear (bilinear) towards the predicted linear relationship as the surface deformation is removed. The experimental observations are rationalized by inclusion of a depth dependent, polishing induced forest dislocation density within the Nix-Gao model.
