NIST Software Package for Obtaining Charpy Transition Curves

May 11, 2021
Enrico Lucon, Jolene Splett, Amanda Koepke, David Newton
NIST has developed a software package that allows users to fit test results obtained from Charpy or toughness tests as a function of test temperature, thereby obtaining so-called transition curves. Non-linear fitting is available for five regression models

December 5, 2019
Lucas N. Koepke, Jolene D. Splett, Timothy P. Quinn, Nikolas W. Hrabe, Jake T. Benzing, Michael R. Frey
Noisy measurement data pose a challenge for changepoint analysis, especially in the presence of multiple changepoints and when the model is nonlinear. We explore various approaches to estimating changepoints and their standard errors under these conditions
