    Withdrawn Rationale:

    These test methods for impact testing cover the details of apparatus, test specimens and procedures for cast iron, including gray iron, white iron, malleable iron, ductile iron, and austempered ductile iron, but not including chilled rolls or rolls with white iron skins.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee A04 on Iron Castings, these test methods were withdrawn in October 2011 and replaced by Test Methods A327/A327M on Impact Testing of Cast Irons.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods for impact testing cover the details of apparatus, test specimens and procedures for cast iron, including gray iron, white iron, malleable iron, ductile iron, and austempered ductile iron, but not including chilled rolls or rolls with white iron skins.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. A companion standard, A 327, lists values in inch-pound units.

    This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.3 The Charpy-type impact test shall be employed for testing gray and white irons.

    1.4 Either the standard notched or unnotched charpy impact test shall be employed in testing of malleable or ductile irons. Selection of the type bar is dependent upon the specific material to be evaluated as defined in Section .

    1.5 Both types of charpy bars have been designated to characterize the fracture toughness of irons. The unnotched charpy bar, when tested, will produce substantially higher energy values than the notch bar type. The unnotched bar is therefore specified for testing irons that have low fracture toughness characteristics.
