The Charpy impact test, also known as the Charpy V-notch test, is a standard high strain-rate test which determines the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture.

This absorbed energy is a measure of a given material's notch toughness and acts as a tool to study temperature-dependent ductile-brittle transition. It is widely applied in valve industry for low temp applications,
