Charpy impact test values for A 694 Gr 65 material

Charpy impact test values for A 694 Gr 65 material

(OP)
Does body knows form where we get the requirement values for minimum average absorbed energy and minimum individual absorbed energy for ASTM A 694 Gr.65 flange material? The values are not specified in the ASTM A 694 specification.

RE: Charpy impact test values for A 694 Gr 65 material

So get them from the fabrication or construction code, MSS SP-44, or ISO 15590-3.

I refered both the code but it is not specified.

RE: Charpy impact test values for A 694 Gr 65 material

OR you provide your own acceptance impact values for design conditions and test the material for acceptance.

RE: Charpy impact test values for A 694 Gr 65 material

OK, so let's wind this back a bit. Which document is asking for a Charpy test, and who specified that this document be used?

Can we use ASTM Grades as A694 for ISO flanges? Are there additional requirements that need to be checked?

RE: Charpy impact test values for A 694 Gr 65 material

If the customer orders a flange to meet ISO 15590-3 requirements, they will expect to see compliance with ISO 15590-3 on the inspection documents. Seeing just ASTM A694 will not make them happy. So, someone will have to check the requirements of both standards and ascertain whether it can be dual certified. I wish them well in that task.

RE: Charpy impact test values for A 694 Gr 65 material

There was an old Battelle equation linking required minimum Charpy absorbed energy values to SMYS. While I forget the specific equation, the minimum absorbed energy would be approximately 25/20 ft-lbs at a specified temp.

RE: Charpy impact test values for A 694 Gr 65 material

@weldstan

Was it simply ((SMYS in MPa)/10) Joules?

If memory serves, I think it was SMYS - 10Ksi / 2 as an approximation in ft-lbs minimum average. It's been over 35 years since I last used the data and I was more involved at that time using other equations for determining minimum absorbed energy to preclude ductile shear fracture in gas pipelines.

I believe that I also saw your equation as well.
