Schematic diagram of three-dimensional MD model of single-crystal copper for nanoindentation with hemispherical indenter after nanocutting. The size of the control volume is LX × LY × LZ = 27.112 nm × 12.65 nm × 18.07 nm. In all the calculations, the velocity of the diamond tool vc = 200 ms−1 and the velocity of the indenter vi = 30 ms−1.
