Certification of Charpy V-notch test pieces of 60 J nominal absorbed energy Certified Reference Material ERM-FA014o, Certification Report
This certification report describes the processing and characterisation of ERM-FA014o, a batch of Charpy V-notch certified reference test pieces. Sets of five of these test pieces are used for the verification of impact pendulums according to EN 10045-2 (Charpy impact test on metallic materials, Part 2: Method for the verification of impact testing machines, ) or according to ISO 148-2 (Metallic materials - Charpy pendulum impact test � Part 2: Verification of test machines, ). Measurements were performed to determine the certified value for absorbed energy (= energy required to break a V-notched test piece when tested using a pendulum impact testing machine). The certified value (58.7 J) and the uncertainty (1.5 J, k = 2 corresponding to a confidence level of about 95 %) relates to the expected mean of a set of five test pieces. The certified value is traceable to the Charpy impact test method as described in EN 10045-1  and ISO 148 , via the corresponding Master Batch ERM-FA014c of the same nominal absorbed energy (60 J).
