This program is a simple calculator application with a built-in Vickers Hardness (HV) function.
It was programmed as part of a much larger project to calculate and store Vikers Hardness machinery data.
It is offered here free of charge and as-is. The program is available as a windows installer and will run on most flavours of windows or wine.
