Author: Bock, W K

With increased use of the Charpy test for specification and for material selection, misinterpretation of the test and overrating of its value has occurred. This paper examines the Charpy test critically, and by indicating the behavior of different steels under each of the embrittling factors of the Charpy test, it limits the interpretation of the test and the possible uses of the test.
