Abstract:

The study of high-melting compounds, such as carbides, borides and nitrides, by the microhardness method is still an acceptable means of observing their static hardness over a wide range. The purpose here is to consider certain methodological problems in the study of microhardness in these substances over a wide temperature range--the preparation of test samples, and the selection of load and of the time-parameters of loading.
