Measurement of mechanical properties is a vital part of quality control of various product components. It ensures they conform to set material design specifications. One such property oftem measured is hardness. In today's technological world where miniaturisation of components is becoming common in electronic and other industrial products measurement of properties of hardness and prediction of mechanical behaviour is demanded not only on a micro scale but nano scale. the important question is whether micro hardnes can predict nano hardness in materials. in this paper an attempt is made to compare microhardness to nano hardness values in alloys.
