Objectives/Purpose To familiarize students with two common micro- hardness tests. Knoop and Vickers. Calibration of microhardness tester Appropriate selection of testing Determine hardness at different phases of a two- phase alloy. Determine the fracture toughness of brittle materials using the Vickers indentation method.
Micro-scale Hardness: For metal alloys that are multi-phase, non-homogeneous or prone to cracking, macro-hardness measurements by Rockwell B or C will be highly variable. Indentation in local region with lower loads will provide a measure of non-homogeneity.
