Charpy Impact Testing

fatigue testing

For nearly 50 years, ATS has been providing many industries with testing and inspection services including charpy impact testing. This particular impact testing also known as the Charpy V-notch testing helps determine a material’s toughness. In our comprehensive materials testing labs our experts perform this test in accordance to multiple standards including but not limited to the ASTM, ISO and EN. By following the applicable standard to spec it will determine your metal’s ductility or brittleness which is an indicator of how much energy your specimen will absorb. After observing the surface of the fracture, it will reveal brittleness or ductility.

What the Fracture Surface Reveals?

Brittleness– Bright and Crystalline Surface – Absorbs Less Energy

Ductile – Dull and Fibrous – Absorbs More Energy

Popular Industry Standards Include:

  • ASTM E23
  • ASTM A370
  • ISO 148-1
  • EN 10045-1
