This set of ISO-V specimens is available as an accessory for the WP 410 experimental unit. In a Charpy test, a notched specimen whose two ends lie on a support is broken or bent by hammer impact and drawn through the supports. The resistance of the specimen against this load provides an insight into the notched bar impact strength of the material.
The results of the Charpy test offer a reference for the properties of the material. However, they are only valid for comparison when they are attained with geometrically equivalent specimens under the same test conditions. For this reason, only ISO profile specimens are used as well as notched specimens with a rectangular profile (GUNT- profile).
The set contains ten ISO-V specimens made of stainless steel (1.4301).
