1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for Southern Rhodesia before it changed its name to Zimbabwe. This was the code used in international transactions to and from bank accounts in Southern Rhodesia.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Southern Rhodesia. This was used as an international standard for shipping to Southern Rhodesia.

In both cases, the code is obsolete.

Readings can be in either Brinell hardness or Rockwell hardness values.
The bottom third of the bit had a Rockwell hardness of about 62 [R.SUB.C] and then the rest of the drill bit had an average hardness of about 27 [R.SUB.C].
Customers may ask what the "Rockwell hardness test" figure means; manufacturers may quote it in their literature.
SATurn allows heavy stock removal on straight and outside diameters (ODs) or special form diameters to grinding machine tolerances on virtually any difficult material or Rockwell hardness. Additional machine options are the high-speed (30,000rpm) spindle version and the ability to feature dual workheads mounted on an index table, facing 180[degrees] from one another.
Traditional Asian cutlery utilizing this mix typically attains a Rockwell hardness measurement of 62, which ensures that the knife will maintain its edge for an extended time.
For example, the Rockwell hardness scales are distinguished by the amount of static force applied (e.g., 100kg for Rockwell B compared to 150kg for Rockwell C); the tip shape (e.g., a spherical tip with a diameter of 1.6 mm for Rockwell B compared to a conical tip that has a spherical apex with a radius of 200 [micro]m for Rockwell C); and the tip material (e.g., steel for Rockwell B compared to diamond for Rockwell C) [1].
Lone Wolf Knives' Tighe Pan knife by Brian Tighe has a blade built to a Rockwell hardness of C 59-61.
