About the Course

This course covers the determination of the Brinell hardness of metallic materials by the Brinell indentation hardness principle. The course provides the requirements for a Brinell testing machine and the procedures for performing Brinell hardness tests.

The course includes downloadable resources including a procedural outline and a pdf of the standard, instructional video content, interactive knowledge checks, and a self-grading quiz.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Identify principles of test and apparatus, including the Brinell Hardness Test Principle as well as the Brinell Testing Machine and its components.
  • Recognize test piece requirements, including those for thickness, width, and finish.
  • Recall test procedure, including those for the indentation.
  • Recall whether conversion to other hardness scales or tensile strength values is acceptable.
  • Define reporting requirements as outlined for ASTM E10.
