Charpy test

Charpy test

[′shär·pē ‚test]
(metallurgy)
An impact test to determine the ductility of a metal; a freely swinging pendulum is allowed to strike and break a notched specimen that has been laid loosely on a support; the work done by the pendulum is obtained by comparing the position of the pendulum before release with the position to which the pendulum swings after breaking the specimen.

Charpy test

A single-blow impact test utilizing a falling pendulum which breaks a specimen, usually notched, supported at both ends.

What's more, a movement has emerged to abandon Izod impact reporting (as per the ASTM D256 test protocol) in favor of the Charpy test (ISO 179), another pendulum impact method that is dominant in Europe.
The researchers chose the Charpy test to evaluate microstructure, since earlier work indicated that, "impact test results are a more sensitive function of aluminum-silicon as-cast microstructure than are tensile tests.
