What is Rockwell Hardness Testing?

Hardness is a characteristic of a material, not a fundamental physical property. It is defined as the resistance to indentation, and is determined by measuring the permanent depth of indentation. Put more simply, when using a fixed force (load) and a given indenter, the smaller the indentation, the harder the material.
