Abstract

A horizontal comparison is made between the four laboratories that certify Charpy impact verification specimens. The participants in this study were Japan, France, the European Commission, and the United States. The exercise was conducted to show how the impact verification programs, specimens, and test procedures compare with each other. Results for both 8 and 2 mm tups were compared.
