Image of Brinell-tested tensile specimenEdit
Would this be of use in illustrating the concept?--18.104.22.168 20:18, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
HBS compared with HBWEdit
What is BHN?Edit
Why is this article classified in the category of Dimensionless numbers? Is not Brinell hardness a quantity that has the dimension of pressure? Doesn't it follow from the definitions in this article that the unit of BHN, as defined here, is kgf/mm² (in gravitational metric system), and that the unit of HBW is N/mm², which is the same as one megapascal (in SI units)? Both are units of pressure. -FKLS Maybe it is customary to omit its units, but these are what the numbers really mean. (talk) 07:08, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
This wikipedia article plagiarizes the page at http://www.engineersedge.com/manufacturing/brinell_hardness_test_equation_13173.htmEdit

The standards referencedEdit
The standards referenced need to be updated, as new the ones referenced were withdrawn and replaced by a newer version on 2014. Additionally, the pages linked to the standards are wrong. I tried following the standard EN ISO 6506-1:2005: Metallic materials – Brinell hardness test – Part 1: test method and it was linked to a Vickers (NOT Brinell) standard (also withdrawn) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 10:56, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
Non-Destructive - ClarificationEdit
I made an account because I saw something I could help clarify. The advantages section has a confusing tag at the top.
Brinell Testing is seen as non-destructive since it minimally damages the part in question, and it does not impair the function, compared to endurance testing, which usually breaks the part entirely.
