A molecular dynamics model of a nanoindentation experiment was simulated in order to calculate the elastic modulus of several different Lennard-Jones (LJ) solids. It was found that the elastic modulus increased significantly as the depth of the potential well that describes the interactions between the atoms in the sample was increased.
