Hardness, as applied to most materials, and in particular metals, is a valuable, revealing, and commonly employed mechanical test that has been in use in various forms for more than 250 years. Certainly, as a material property, its value and importance cannot be understated, the information from a hardness test can complement and often be used in conjunction with other material verification techniques such as tensile or compression to provide critical performance information.
