1 DUCTILE – BRITTLE TRANSITION TEST PROGRAMME

2 PURPOSE AND SCOPE. To establish a Hounsefield Impact Machine Test Procedure. To establish a Hounsefield Impact Machine Test Procedure. This procedure will determine the use of the machine when conducting Ductile-Brittle Transition Tests. This procedure will determine the use of the machine when conducting Ductile-Brittle Transition Tests. The programme will determine safety issues related to the test programme. The programme will determine safety issues related to the test programme.

3 Hounsefield Impact Machine Test Procedures 1. Raise the test-piece pendulum to the lock-in position to the right of the base. 2. Raise the hammer pendulum to the lock-in position to the left of the base. 3. Set the release mechanism lever to the lock-in position. 4. Set the dial to zero on the scale. 5. Place the test-piece in the test-piece holder with the notch positioned with the lock-in bar. 6. Release the release mechanism lever to activate the test. 7. Record the energy absorbed in N/m from the scale on the dial. 8. Eject the fractured test-piece and determine the fracture appearance. 9. Unlock the test machine.
