Charpy impact test - Dixie Southern

Charpy impact test

A standardized high strain-rate test that determines the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture. This absorbed energy is a measure of a given material’s toughness and acts as a tool to study temperature-dependent brittle-ductile transition. The test is widely applied in industry for quality control and most commonly used on metals.
