No...It’s very brittle...

Diamonds are “Harder” but titanium is “Stronger”

Hardness is determined by a scratching test, they see how it scratches other minerals including itself. But at the same tame, you could take a hammer to it and you’d beable to easily smash it.

Diamond is the hardest metal known to man.

Due to extensive research done by the Fourchon University of Science, diamond has been confirmed as the the hardest metal known the man. The research is as follows.

Pocket-protected scientists built a wall of iron and crashed a diamond car into it at 400 miles per hour, and the car was unharmed.

They then built a wall out of diamond and crashed a car made of iron moving at 400 miles an out into the wall, and the wall came out fine.

They then crashed a diamond car made of 400 miles per hour into a wall, and there were no survivors.

They crashed 400 miles per hour into a diamond traveling at iron car. Western New York was powerless for hours.

They rammed a wall of metal into a 400 mile per hour made of diamond, and the resulting explosion shifted the earth’s orbit 400 million miles away from the sun, saving the earth from a meteor the size of a small Washington suburb that was hurtling towards Midwestern Prussia at 400 billion miles per hour.

They shot a diamond made of iron at a car moving at 400 walls per hour, and as a result caused two wayward airplanes to lose track of their bearings, and make a fatal crash with two buildings in downtown New York.

They spun 400 miles at diamond into iron per wall. The results were inconclusive.

Finally, they placed 400 diamonds per hour in front of a car made of wall traveling at miles, and the result proved without a doubt that diamonds were the hardest metal of all time, if not just the hardest metal known the man.

this is too funny.

Dimandons are the hardest substance known to men. It’s not a metal, and it WON’T break if you smash it with a hammer.

Well my Dad says that there is a metal so strong that you need a ceramic blade to cut it, diamond isnt strong enough. My Dad is a C&C Machinist, and he knows a lot about that stuff, since it is his job.

Man-made nanomaterials are currently the hardest substance on earth. I’m pretty sure diamonds beat titanium though.

Diamond is harder, but is no longer the hardest substance

“The gemstone lost its title of the “world’s hardest material” to man-made nanomaterials some time ago. Now a rare natural substance looks likely to leave them all far behind at 58% harder than diamond.

The first, wurtzite boron nitride has a similar structure to diamond, but is made up of different atoms.

The second, the mineral lonsdaleite, or hexagonal diamond is made from carbon atoms just like diamond, but they are arranged in a different shape.

Only small amounts of wurtzite boron nitride and lonsdaleite exist naturally or have been made in the lab so until now no one had realised their superior strength. The simulation showed that wurtzide boron nitride would withstand 18% more stress than diamond, and lonsdaleite 58% more. If the results are confirmed with physical experiments, both materials would be far harder than any substance ever measured.

Rare mineral lonsdaleite is sometimes formed when meteorites containing graphite hit Earth, while wurtzite boron nitride is formed during volcanic eruptions that produce very high temperatures and pressures."

I must concur.
When considering structural buckling, I must say, the steel can withstand more tension and compression loads than diamond. Also more elasticity, shear and gravity loads. Yes, a diamond will be the most resilient to hold it’s shape, but when confronted with other massive loads, it will buckle and shatter easily in long lengths at midpoint, while steel, put simply, can bend and expand (depending on the weather/season if it’s hot or cold it varies) while diamond cannot.

steel has a stronger tensile strength, but diamond is harder on the Mohs Scale

I guess it all comes down to the specifics of the question. With all the various Steel alloys used in aeronautics and specialized construction it would be hard to name the strongest material with the perfect give and flex. I’m sure it would be Carbonized or a Tungsten alloy of some type.

Thus why I answered the question that was specifically asked. I read a really cool article hypothesizing on just Why we have so much gold, platinum, tungsten and other precious elements so close to the planet surface. Pretty interesting read and lots of explosions lol

There’s no disagreement here that diamond is harder on the mohs mineral scale and it would definitely make a scratch on steel. That’s why I mentioned that diamond will be more resilient to hold it’s shape. I also mentioned tensile stress but used it in simpler words for the MvC’ers to understand such as “tension” stress (stretched apart) as opposed to compression. Either way, diamond cannot withstand (or bend) to any of the aforementioned loads at 12x12x40 foot to 60 foot lengths like steel could. It’s just too damn brittle, brotha. Especially when getting into seismic load and resistance factors. But that of course would only be applied for a structure attached to a foundation with heavy seismic activity.

LOL I’m just going off what I know, and considering the possibility of diamond being replaced with steel in a structure here on earth. But to answer the question, “Which is harder, diamond or titanium steel?" Obviously Diamond. But then again, “titanium” steel has very different properties than your average ASTM Hot rolled/cold rolled or galvanized steel. So I guess I really don’t know at this juncture. I would have to look more into Titanium properties.
