THE ROCKWELL HARDNESS TEST

What is the Rockwell hardness test and how does it work?

The procedure for testing the Rockwell hardness of a material is quite simple. The most used Rockwell hardness scales are Rockwell C and A (HRC – HRA) based on the principle of using a diamond cone indenter and the Rockwell B (HRB) using a tungsten ball as a hardness indenter.
When testing thin components or hardfacing coating layers such as chromium the Rockwell method used is called Superficial Rockwell which involves minor testing loads, the scale can be HRN using a diamond indenter and HRT using a ball indenter.

SCOPE

The Rockwell hardness test is an empirical indentation hardness test that can provide useful information about metallic materials. This information may correlate to tensile strength, wear resistance, ductility, and other physical characteristics of metallic materials, and may be useful in quality control and selection of materials.

The Rockwell C Hardness Test

PRINCIPLES

An indentation hardness test using a verified machine to force a diamond spheroconical indenter or tungsten carbide (or steel) ball indenter, under specified conditions, into the surface of the material under test, and to measure the difference in depth of the indentation as the force on the indenter is increased from a specified preliminary test force to a specified total test force and then returned to the preliminary test force. By the way, the test is divided into three steps of force application and removal:

Step 1 – Indenter is brought into contact with the test specimen, and the preliminary test force is applied. After holding the preliminary test force for a specified dwell time, the baseline depth of indentation is measured.

Step 2 – Force on the indenter is increased at a controlled rate by the additional test force to achieve the total test force. The total test force is held for a specified dwell time.

Step 3 – The additional test force is removed, returning to the preliminary test force. After holding the preliminary test force for a specified dwell time, the final depth of indentation is measured. The Rockwell hardness value is derived from the difference in the final and baseline indentation depths while under the preliminary test force. The preliminary test force is removed and the indenter is removed from the test specimen.
