impact test

impact test

[′im‚pakt ‚test]
(engineering)
Determination of the degree of resistance of a material to breaking by impact, under bending, tension, and torsion loads; the energy absorbed is measured in breaking the material by a single blow.

impact test

A method of determining the resistance of a specimen to fracture upon the application of a dynamic physical shock.

The West Yorkshire-based recycling company invested in the Zwick model HIT 5.5 Joule capacity system to replace a dated impact test machine and says it is now able to produce highly reliable test results which is assisting in improving the quality of the products it supplies.
In this impact test, the test vehicle is placed on the impact ramp, where it is pulled by a cable, which is boosted by an electric motor operated from a cockpit; when the test vehicle is launched against the rigid barrier, the condition is that it should be with the ignition in ON position with the gear box free of traction and the emergency brake deactivated.
