Our recent work on extracting mechanical properties of polymers from indentation experiments shows that linear viscoelastic behavior, post-yield and crazing properties, and size effects can be characterized using a combined experimental-numerical approach. More research is needed in the field of full constitutive parameter extraction, thin film properties assessment, and size effects.
