Impact tests to Charpy and Izod
  • Impact tests for complete pipe sections are typically performed with special, non-instrumented drop weight testers
  • Small pipe diameters as often used in automotive engineering can be tested to ISO 7628-2 with an impact tester in a modified Charpy setup with a 7.5 J pendulum. 
  • Furthermore, it is possible to perform impact tests and notched impact tests on specimens taken from the pipe wall to Charpy or Izod test methods.
