## What is the strength of aluminum?

Aluminum has a tensile strength of 276 MPa and a density of 2.81gcm-3. Aluminum is, therefore, lighter than steel.

**How do you calculate Charpy impact strength?**

Test formula

- The Knotch Impact Energy KV = mgH – mgh.
- m – Mass of the Pendulum.
- H – Height of Pendulum starting point.
- g – Gravity.
- h – Height of the pendulum from the first reversal point.

**What is Charpy notched impact strength?**

The Charpy impact test measures the energy absorbed by a standard notched specimen while breaking under an impact load [10]. This test consists of striking a suitable specimen with a hammer on a pendulum arm while the specimen is held securely at each end. The hammer strikes opposite the notch.

### Is aluminium stronger than steel?

Because it’s stronger and more durable than aluminum, steel also weighs more than its counterpart. Steel is essentially 250% times denser than aluminum, making it obviously heavier. And due to its high density/weight, it’s less likely to bend under force or heat.

### What is the shear strength of aluminum?

**What is ASTM standard for the Charpy impact test?**

According to ASTM A370, the standard specimen size for Charpy impact testing is 10 mm × 10 mm × 55 mm. Subsize specimen sizes are: 10 mm × 7.5 mm × 55 mm, 10 mm × 6.7 mm × 55 mm, 10 mm × 5 mm × 55 mm, 10 mm × 3.3 mm × 55 mm, 10 mm × 2.5 mm × 55 mm.

**What is Charpy value measure of?**

The Charpy impact test, also known as the Charpy V-notch test, is a high strain-rate test that involves striking a standard notched specimen with a controlled weight pendulum swung from a set height. The impact test helps measure the amount of energy absorbed by the specimen during fracture.
