What’s up guys? Michael with Michael Talks Metal back for episode 129.
This time we are going to go into more detail about a type of test we saw on our Inconel alloy 625 test certificate….. the Charpy impact test.
If you would like to see a brief video to visualize this test… click here
There are many others available but this one will give you the idea
Looking at the test certificate again, we see that both the material and test sample are in the annealed condition. Cold work or heat treatment are factors that affect impact properties.
After that we have the actual energy absorbed in metric units Joules as well as english units Ft Lbs.
We also have the average of this sample and two additional that make up a test set.
Next we have the test temperature, a chilly minus 75 deg F
After that we have the lateral expansion of the sample measured on the fractured sample as well as the observed % of shear in the fracture.
