However, the selection of any one of the striker geometries is permitted, after such consideration. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
Consult relevant material standards for processing guidelines FIG. Place this block or base at a height suitable for ease of operation. Use a random numbers table if desired. Send us a request Need help or have a question? Use one symbol, such as X, to indicate a failure and a different symbol, such as O, to indicate a nonfailure at each height level.
If a test sample passes, the drop height is increased by one unit. Send us a request Wilton UK: Originally approved in The principles of If the approximate mean-failure height is unknown, six or more additional specimens shall be used to determine the appropriate starting point of the test. The selection of any one of the striker geometries is permitted.
Different materials respond differently to changes in the velocity of impact. However, the velocity of a free-falling object is a function of the square root of the drop height.
D 20 — Falling dart impact, also known as Gardner impact, is a traditional method for evaluating the wstm strength or toughness of a plastic material.
The test is often used to specify appropriate materials for applications involving impact or to evaluate the effect of secondary finishing operations or other environmental factors on plastic impact properties.
Gardner Impact ASTM D4226, D5420
A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. See Test Methods D for descriptions of suitable micrometers.
Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities. Then test the second specimen. Consider the end use environment and requirements when choosing d420 the available striker geometries.
Machining specimens to reduce thickness variation is not permissible. For optimum results using the staircase method, a minimum of 30 test samples are necessary.

ASTM D – GARDNER IMPACT
Last previous edition approved in as D – 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.
Different materials respond differently to changes in the velocity of impact. Report other d54200 deformation due to impact, whether the specimens fail or not. Any flat specimens can be tested – the axtm test sample is a mm 4″ disk or plaque. MFE 5 hwf 2 ini, where: D — 04 Test each specimen only once.

Data in these tables are speci? Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Users of this standard ast, expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.
Precision and Bias 4 For example, in some cases incipient cracking in glass-reinforced polymers is difficult to differentiate from the reinforcing? NOTE 4—As few as ten specimens often yield sufficiently reliable estimates of the mean-failure height.
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. Permanent deformation alone is not considered failure, but note the extent of such deformation depth, area. Data from only three laboratories were used in calculating the values in these tables.
