The Knoop test can be used to measure this on a microscopic level by applying a load of less than 2 Newtons. The Vickers test, which is one method to test for it macroscopically, uses a diamond pyramid indentor, though the most common ways of determining this physical property are the Rockwell and Brinell tests, the latter of which is performed by pushing a steel sphere onto a material's surface until an indentation is formed. From the diameter of the indentation observed, one can calculate a number which, when scaled by 500, will yield the tensile strength of the material.
