Sample text

For studies of minerals this is quite useful and has been discussed in some detail by Winchell (1945). Hardness also depends on which face of a non-cubic crystal is being indented. The difference may be large. For a crystal with tetragonal symmetry the face that is normal to the c-axis can be expected to be different from those that are normal to the a-axes. Similarly the basal faces of hexagonal crystals are different from the prism faces. One extreme case is graphite where the resistance to indentation on the basal plane is very different than the resistance on the prism planes.

Next consider a case that is closer to the indenters used for measuring hardness, but is still highly simplified. 5 illustrates the incremental penetration of a conical indenter (the conical shape simplifies the practical geometries) into a plastic material. The incremental work done by the load, F on the indenter, is Fdx. 45YL2dx where Y is the stress required for plastic deformation. During the initial part of the penetration process, the increment of applied work is too large to be balanced by the energy dissipated by the plastic deformation increment.

Data from Mott (1957). The dependence is roughly exponential. That is: VHN ∼ exp (M). 3, but coordinates are linear. 7 BLUNT OR SOFT INDENTERS Standard indenters have sharp points to ensure that indentations always get started in hard materials. However, blunt indenters will usually make indentations providing the load applied to them is greater than some critical value. Furthermore, they need not be harder than the material being indented. This has been demonstrated by Brookes and his colleagues in a series of papers.
