Abstract:

The shortcomings of various experimental techniques associated with the production of reliable instrumented Charpy test records are examined for the case of materials which show substantial ductility prior to fracture. A simple procedure for calibration and testing which avoids these problems and has direct relevance to fracture toughness properties is discussed.
