To determine what properties can be measured using instrumented indentation technique, a three dimensional, rigid, conical indenter of a given half angle, θ, indenting normally into homogeneous solid was studied. The quantities of interest include the force and the contact depth or the projected contact area. In addition, the total and reversible work of identation was considered. By performing finite element calculations using ABAQUS, the dimensionless functions were evaluated and their implications determined.
