Brinell Hardness Test

A standard method of measuring the hardness of materials. The smooth surface of the metal is subjected to indentation by a hardened steel ball under pressure. The diameter of the indentation in the material surface is then measured by a microscope and the hardness value is read from a chart or determined by a prescribed formula.
