    Price: $125.00

    About the Series

    ASTM's Mechanical Engineering Technician Series enables lab technicians to improve their skills through industry-leading, self-guided online training. The training courses are a key tool to supplement existing internal lab QA/QC programs.

    Each course includes:
    • Self-guided training complete with video demonstrations, checklists, concept presentations, data sheets and glossaries
    • Review quiz with automatic grading
    • Certificate upon successful completion of training module

    ASTM Learning Center

    All ASTM online courses are available by subscription on ASTM's Learning Center. The Learning Center provides advanced features that let you set up learning plans, track learning progress and compliance, and run reports.

    About the Course

    This courses covers the test methods that describe notched-bar impact testing of metallic materials by the Charpy (simple-beam) test and the Izod (cantilever-beam) test. The course covers the requirements for: test specimens, test procedures, test reports, test machines verifying Charpy impact machines, optional test specimen configurations, designation of test specimen orientation, and determining the percent of shear fracture on the surface of broken impact specimens.

    In addition, information is provided on the significance of notched-bar impact testing, and methods of measuring the center of strike.

    Learning Outcomes

    By the end of this course you will be able to:

    • Determine the impact strength of a metal
    • Predict the likelihood of brittle fracture accurately
    • Explain the Charpy and Izod test approaches
    • Summarize the procedural steps required to determine the absorbed energy of metallic materials by notched bar impact testing


    Anyone who runs the E23 test method or who needs an understanding of the test method and how it is properly run.
