Abstract

Hardness is not a fundamental property of a material but it is related to the elastic and plastic properties of the material. Hardness of a material can be determined from indentation hardness tests. Brinell hardness test is one of the commonly used macro-indentation hardness test types to quantify the hardness of a material. In this study, the sensitivity of Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) to the material properties of structural steels that exhibit a plastic plateau in their true stress-strain curve is analysed. Four basic structural steel material properties, Young’s modulus (
