Brittle fracture: BS 5950, para. 220.127.116.11
Two members have responded to Mr A.L. Bruder's query in Verulam, 17 February 1998. Rod Gibbons writes from London NW3:
I am sympathetic to Mr Bruder who needs to determine Charpy requirements using 18.104.22.168
of BS 5950. I suspect that impact strength of structural steels is seldom a concern in the UK, which may explain the poor coverage in BS 5950, BS 4360, and the BS EN which is
replacing that. Not knowing the plate thicknesses or yield strengths concerned, I can
comment only generally.
