TESTS ON METALS 1. TENSION TEST - to obtain stress-strain diagram & the following properites: (A) Yield Strengths at certain offset (B) Ultimate Tensile Strength (C) Elastic Modulus (D) % Elongation at failure (measure of ductility) 2. HARDNESS TEST (A) Brinell Hardness test Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) = load mass/ indented area = p / [ π D/2 ( D - % (D 2 -d 2 ) ) ] (B) ROCKWELL HARDNESS TEST A minor load is first applied to seat the indenter.
