Dart Impact - ASTM D3029-F

Sample Type Required Quantity Equipment Used
Bottles 21 Drop Weight Impact Testor

Purpose

This procedure determines the weight, height and energy at which a sample fails when it is impacted with a free-falling weight according to ASTM D3029-F.


Description

A drop weight impact tester is used to drop a weighted dart onto a specimen that has been clamped into a flat position. The dart weight is increased or decreased incrementally until at least half of the samples tested fail. Each sample is tested only once. The drop height may also be adjusted to increase the dart velocity upon impact.
