Title: Charpy Machine Verification: Limits and Uncertainty
Published: September 01, 2008
Abstract: The purpose of this document is to clarify some issues pertaining to uncertainty statements and the ASTM E 23 limits used in the Charpy machine verification program. We explain some of the distributional subtleties associated with uncertainty and ultimately relate these to the ASTM limits.
