  • Content Description: The use of quantitative image analyzer to determine microhardness values was investigated. Microhardness traverses were made across chemically polished, partially oxidized T-111 alloy specimens using both Vickers and Knoop indenters. Microhardness values were obtained from both area and diagonal readings using a Classimat image analyzer (Classimat is a registered trademark of E. Leitz, Inc., Rockliegh, N. J.). These values were then compared with those obtained by conventional optical measurements. The data obtained by the various methods are compared and the advantages and disadvantages such as accuracy, time requirements, versatility, and limitations of particular methods are discussed.
