How to Calculate Brinell hardness?
Brinell hardness calculator uses Brinell Hardness = 2*Indentation Load/(pi*Diameter of the indenter*(Diameter of the indenter-sqrt(Diameter of the indenter^2-Diameter of the indentation^2))) to calculate the Brinell Hardness, Brinell hardness test utilizes a hard, spherical indenter which is forced into the surface of the metal to be tested. The diameter of the hardened steel (or tungsten carbide) indenter is 10.00 mm. Brinell Hardness is denoted by HB symbol.
How to calculate Brinell hardness using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Brinell hardness, enter Indentation Load (P_{load}), Diameter of the indenter (D) & Diameter of the indentation (d) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Brinell hardness calculation can be explained with given input values -> 7.2E-6 = 2*5000/(pi*0.01*(0.01-sqrt(0.01^2-0.003^2))).
