Impact Test Notes

  • Identify which pieces of material must be impact tested and the temperature(s) at which the impact tests are conducted.
  • Identify whether production impact tests must be conducted for specific welds and the temperature(s) at which the impact tests are conducted.
  • For materials not impact tested, identify, by reference to the correct Code paragraph, the reason why this material is not being impact tested.
  • It is highly preferable that the acceptance criteria (absorbed energy values or lateral expansion) for the impact tests be identified on the drawing since these change with material thickness and strength level.

This information is required to be on the Manufacturer's Data Report and must be communicated by the designer to the shop in some fashion. The means of communication might be notes on the drawing, separate instruction sheets that are referenced on the drawing (and submitted to ABSA with the drawings) or some equally positive means.
