IntroductionRelationships in Materials Science


are evaluate by




named as

tension, compression, hardness, bending, torsion, high strain rate, creep, fatigues, fracture, corrosion, formability, wear, and some others.



  • Each test should / may be carried out according to a standard, i.e. a set of instruction to follow in order to obtain data useful to drive the materials properties.

Sample tension testing

Sample: Tension Testing

“Tension Testing consists of subjecting a prepared specimen of special size and shape, or a full-size specimen, to a gradually increasing uniaxial load (stress) until failure occurs.”1

Tension testing and results

Tension Testing and Results

Sample hardness testing

Sample: Hardness Testing

“Hardness test is the measures of the material to penetration by a sharp object”1”

Common hardness tests are

Brinell, Rockwell and Vickers.

1: Donald R. ASKELAND, "The science and engineering of materials“, 3rd Edi., p147, 2003.

Hardness testing brinell

Hardness Testing - Brinell

Brinell hardness test:

A hard steel ball (usually 10 mm in diameter) is used.

3000 kg – Cast iron and steel

500 kg – Nonferrous alloys

Hardness testing rockwell

Hardness Testing - Rockwell

Rockwell hardness test:

A diamond cone (120o) and hard carbide (or steel balls) usually 1/16 in. (1.5875mm) or 1/8 in. (3.175mm) in diameter are used.

RA – 60 kg – Very hard materials

RB – 100 kg – Brass, low strength steels

RC – 150 kg – High-strength steels

RD – 100 kg – High-strength steels

RE – 100 kg – Very soft materials

RF – 60 kg – Al, soft materials

Hardness testing vickers

Hardness Testing - Vickers

Vickers hardness test

is a microhardness test. A diamond pyramid (136o) is used for indentation.

10 kg – Hard materials (such as ceramics)



  • Materials properties are effected by its structure and processing method(s).

  • Required properties are checked by a set of pre-determined instructions, which are formally named standard for testing.
