Abstract

Nanoindentation was used to study the deformation and removal mechanisms of cemented tungsten carbide. It was found that the microstructure of the material has significant influences on its mechanical properties, which determines the critical conditions for damage-free nanogrinding. The results also indicated that when material removal events occur at nanometric scale, such influences should be taken into account for gaining the full potential of nanogrinding.
