Hardness testing is one of the most widely used methods in mechanical materials testing and is used to evaluate material properties such as strength, toughness and wear resistance, as well as the behavior of a material under certain stresses. Hardness is defined as the mechanical resistance that a material offers to the mechanical penetration of a harder test device.
