For relatively soft polymer coatings on soda‐lime glass substrates the indentation load increases substantially when the indenter penetrates into the glass substrate since the glass can now directly support some of the indenter load. A model for the indentation load‐depth behavior is developed by accounting for the indentation load shared by the coating and substrate. This model accounts for the additional load supported by the coating due to the pile‐up of coating material underneath the indenter. T…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
