Charpy Impact Testing

Charpy Impact Testing

Charpy Impact Testing is a mechanical test method used to determine the absorbed energy of a material during fracture. This test process is also known as Charpy V Notch Testing.

Charpy Impact is a standardized high strain-rate test that determines the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture. The absorbed energy is a measure of a material’s notch toughness and acts as a tool to study temperature-dependent ductile-brittle transition and is widely used in the testing industry. This method of testing typically yields results quickly and cost-effectively.

Charpy Impact testing can be used on various metals and alloys, plastics and composite materials.
