Charpy Impact Testing Video Now On YouTube

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Miami Valley Materials Testing Center has begun to enter the YouTube world. We have officially launched our first video highlighting one of our service offerings, Charpy Impact Testing.

The Charpy test was developed in 1905 by French scientist Georges Charpy. It is designed to determine the impact resistance of a material, typically steel or welded specimens. Specifically this test measures the amount of energy absorbed during the fracture of a specimen. The key component of the Charpy test is the ductile-to-brittle transition temperature. It is at this point that the properties of the material shift and can easily become fractured. This temperature is key for designers because working below said temperature can greatly increase the risk of embrittlement and failure.

This short video highlights the process of testing a Charpy specimen.
