Article publication date: 1 March 1944



THE employment of so many types of hardness testing machines, each designed with the object of meeting special requirements, has without doubt given rise to much misunderstanding and some confusion. In order to reach some common understanding of hardness values it has been the practice to prepare tables or curves or provide factors, so that values obtained by one of the various hardness testing methods may be converted to another, or to the generally accepted Brinell value.
