Heat Treating of Irons and Steels
Steel Hardness Conversions
Hardness conversions are empirical relationships that are defined by conversion tables limited to specific categories of materials. This article is a comprehensive collection of tables that list hardness conversion formulas. Approximate Rockwell B and C hardness conversion numbers for nonaustenitic steels, and approximate equivalent hardness numbers for Brinell and Vickers (diamond pyramid) hardness numbers for steels are provided.
