Drop test for ER 70S A1

Drop test for ER 70S A1

I need to do drop test for ER 70S A1. I need to know whether drop test is required for qualifying 20MnMoNi55(SA 508 Gr 3)+ SA350GRLF2/ SA 515 Gr 70 joint using ER 70S A1?
I want to know whether it will pass the test and at what temperature?. Does any one have hand on experience with these material combination.

RE: Drop test for ER 70S A1

What welding standard are you using and does it define the "drop test?"

Best regards - Al

RE: Drop test for ER 70S A1

Do you mean a drop weight tear test or a Charpy V-notch impact test? What temperature; What energy values?? Generally speaking, drop weight tear tests are not defined by most Engineering/Construction Codes because of their expense and they are performed on full thickness specimens.
