The determination of the mechanical properties using the nano or macroindentation test results was developed in order to predict the mechanical properties of materials such as thin or thick coatings [1]. In the present paper a new method using a continuous FEM supported simulation of the microindentation results through a special tester, is proposed in order to predict the stress–strain curve of various ferrous or non ferrous materials that are being used as constructive materials in several machines or devices. The elasticity modulus is determined using a large spherical indenter tip and the stress strain curve using smaller steel balls. In the case of three deferent ball diameter indenter tips, the adopted experimental-analytical methodology present similar results regarding the constitutive law of the examined steel or aluminum specimens.
