ASTM E Standard Test Method for Microindentation Hardness of Materials. ASTM E covers both the Knoop and Vickers Hardness Tests when conducted using test forces in the 1 to gf. range. While this test method is primarily. Knoop and Vickers Hardness of Materials (Microindentation Hardness) – ASTM E – Test Method. The purpose of this standard is to specify how to measure.

The sample must be polished to a mirror finish and is usually cross sectioned and mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy prior to testing.

Non-uniform materials often give inconsistent results. Find out more about the Kindle Personal Document Service.

The Knoop indenter does not produce a geometrically similar indentation as a function of test force.

Microindentation Hardness Testing of Materials Using ASTM E384

You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. Usually the sample is cross sectioned, mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy, and polished to a mirror finish before testing.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Knoop micro-hardness is used to measure the hardness of areas as small as 0.

Vickers tests at gf can be utilized for determination of the bulk hardness, but, as for any hardness test, it is recommended that a number of indents are made and the average and standard deviation are calculated, as needed or as required.

Because of the large difference between the long and short Knoop diagonals, the Knoop indenter is often better suited for determining variations of hardness over very small distances compared to the Vickers indenter.

To determine these differences requires a very small physical indentation. Volume 9, Issue S02 Dennis W.

The success of the specimen preparation procedure in removing preparation-induced damage can, and will, influence test results; this problem becomes more critical as the test force decreases.
