The magnitude of tensile and tear strengths are related. Polymers are softer than metals and ceramics, and most hardness tests are conducted by penetration techniques similar to those described for metals in the previous section. Rockwell tests are frequently used for polymers.19 Other indentation techniques employed are the Durometer and Barcol.20 Table 7.6 Approximate Knoop Hardness (100 g load) for Seven Ceramic Materials Material Diamond (carbon) Boron carbide (B4C) Silicon carbide (SiC) Tungsten carbide (WC) Aluminum oxide (Al2O3) Quartz (SiO2) Glass Approximate Knoop Hardness 7000 2800 2500 2100 2100 800 550 19 ASTM Standard D 785, ‘‘Rockwell Hardness of Plastics and Electrical Insulating Materials.’’ 20 ASTM Standard D 2240, ‘‘Standard Test Method for Rubber Property—Durometer Hardness;’’ and ASTM Standard D 2583, ‘‘Standard Test Method for Indentation of Rigid Plastics by Means of a Barcol Impressor.’’ Tensile strength (103 psi) Tensile strength (MPa) Steels FIGURE 7.31 Relationships between hardness and tensile strength for steel, brass, and cast iron.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
