Palmqvist toughness for hard and brittle materials GPG9

The Palmqvist toughness method is widely used for measuring the fracture toughness of hardmetals.  Fracture toughness values are required to control quality, for new material assessment and for design in product development.  There is no standard for this test method. This document, therefore, includes good laboratory practice for measuring Palmqvist toughness in hardmetals.
