Abstract

Indentations have been carried out on a bulk BSCCO superconductor by using a Vickers indenter. The load-penetration depth curves were analyzed by the work of indentation approach. Some specific material constant describing the properties of materials are calculated as total energy, plastic energy, elastic energy, elastic-total energy, plastic-total energy and elastic-plastic energy constants. The β -material for bulk BSCCO is also determined.
