New video on Charpy impact testing – General Developments – Brief Article

To help customers of the Charpy impact-testing program, NIST is now distributing a video, “How Tough is Steel.” The 20 mm video begins with a background of the Charpy test, then covers the details of the verification program run by NIST, and finally summarizes the procedures that will improve the performance of these machines. The video was designed to supplement the information included in NIST Special Publication 960-4, Standard Practice Guide on Installing, Maintaining, and Verifying Your Charpy Impact Machine. The video has been produced in VHS and CDROM (MPEG 1) formats. It is available from the NIST Charpy program coordinator by sending an e-mail to vigliotti@boulder.nist.gov.
