Notched Weld Testing

Applied Technical Services’ notched weld testing services determine the strength of welded materials. We offer insight into a welded material’s ability to perform tasks in specific conditions. 

What is Charpy V-Notch Testing?

Charpy V-notch testing is a destructive test method that determines the toughness of welded materials with preexisting flaws. During the test, the sample material is machined into a rectangular shape, allowing experts to cut a “V” shaped notch into the material. Experts then place the sample into a fixture where the material endures the impact of a swinging pendulum with a weight attached. The results provide critical information about the sample’s toughness, allowing manufacturers to make informed decisions regarding their material selection. There a several advantages to Charpy V-notch testing, including:
