Test

The event of a price movement that approaches a support level or a resistance level established earlier by the market. A test is passed if prices do not go below the support or resistance level, and the test is failed if prices go on to new lows or highs.

test

The attempt by a stock price or a stock market average to break through a support level or a resistance level. For example, a stock that has declined to $20 on several occasions without moving lower may be expected to test this support level once again. Failing to fall below $20 one more time would be considered a successful test of the support level and a bullish sign for the stock.

The indentation hardness tests are static and the results obtained by these test methods should not be considered as a measure of the abrasion or wear resistance of the plastic materials in question.
All hardness tests should be done with care and with suitable controls.
Unlike the Brinell hardness test, which is mainly concerned with the average pressure under the indenter and maximum contact radius a, Rockwell hardness is determined by the indentation load, relative depth, and indenter geometry.
The pendulum hardness test of a coating applied to a test panel can be carried out in accordance with the test methods using either the Persoz or Konig pendulums as described in ASTM D 4366, BS 3900 E5, DIN 53157, ISO 1522 or NF T30-016.

Thus, a hardness test on carbide basically establishes the depth of penetration of the indentor into the softer binder material containing the distributed, suspended hard grains.
Abstract: The hardness tester presented in the paper is a portable testing equipment for hardness test with static load, for metals and metal alloys, being able to operate both with manual applied load and with applied load through a mobile table of its own frame or through work table of a machine tool in the latter case hardness tester being mounted on machine head that processes components.
