Biographical entry Mulhearne, T.
T. Mulhearne worked for the Alexandria, New South Wales, branch of the Materials Research Laboratories. With L.E. Samuels he studied the deformation associated with conventional hardness testing. They aimed to relate hardness to strength, and they studied localised deformation of the metal in what is now known as adiabatic shear, an instability where the rate of thermal softening exceeds the rate of work hardening associated with the deformation.
