One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A test for determining the hardness of a solid by making an indentation in a sample under standard conditions and measuring the size of the indentation or the distance moved by the indenter.
- ‘A standard method for measuring the elasticity is the Erichsen indentation test.’
- ‘Additional indentation tests were performed at the nanometer and micrometer scales on native articular cartilage to study the effects of the enzymes cathepsin D and elastase.’
- ‘Unfortunately, there are no well-defined spherical indenters available for indentation tests at the subcellular level.’
- ‘Along with micro-hardness indentation tests, the time and temperature to which the steel and encasing concrete at the depth of the steel has been exposed can be identified.’
