CY24ME : Participation to ILC Charpy impact pendulum test at ambient temperature (medium energy)


Reference of the ILC CY24ME
References of test methods ISO 148-1
Frequency Each year
Main characteristics KV₂ (Absorbed energy), LE (Lateral expansion)
Other characteristics SFA (Fracture appearance)
  Caution The number of determinations may be low for the secundary characteristics, what may make inefficient the comparison between laboratories
Determination of the assigned values (“true values” for each characteristic) By statistical computation of the totality of the results with possible selection on competence criteria (accreditation, validation by a reference body, quantity of tests performed in the year), test to detect possible collusion, merging of results not obtained in reproductibility conditions, suppression of technically unvalid results.
Type of statistical computation For numerical results, the statistical computation will provide an assigned value with its attached uncertainty, values of standard deviations for repeatability and reproductibility, limits of alerts for bias and repeatability of the participant, indiviual values for uncertainty of results of participants.
Number of products submitted to tests 1
Number of samples per participation 3
Max number of operators per participation 1 (it is necessary to order as many participations as there are participating test operators)
Product submitted to tests Stainless steel
Type of samples Parrallelepipeds
Approximate dimensions of samples 60x15x15 mm
Specific preparation to be performed by the participant  Machining of test specimens (2 test pieces per supplied sample)
Special notice for this ILC Target energy range: 25-100 J.
