TriDiMap Matlab toolbox¶
Determination of the mechanical properties of each individual phase in the case of a multiphase, heterogeneous or composite material can be achieved using the grid nanoindentation technique ,  and .
The TriDiMap toolbox has been developed to plot, to map and to analyze (nano)indentation dataset.
- With this Matlab toolbox, it is possible:
- to map (in 2D or 3D), to interpolate and to smooth indentation map;
- to plot elastic modulus vs hardness values;
- to plot and to fit probability density functions;
- to plot and to fit cumulative density functions;
- to extract statistical values (mean, min, max with standard deviations) of mechanical properties and fractions for each phase;
- to correct mechanical map using image correlation with microstructural map;
- to correlate/compare mechanical map with microstructural map;
- to plot 4D mechanical property map (indentation tomography).
