Impact (immediate post-concussion assessment and cognitive testing) is a computer-based assessment tool. It’s the most effective tool for comparing a person’s neurocognitive state before a concussion occurs.
What Is a Impact Test?
An impact test is a type of mechanical test where a specimen is subjected to a controlled load or force and observed for failure.
The test is commonly used to determine the toughness or energy absorption capacity of materials such as metals, plastics, ceramics, and composites.
Impact tests are often performed as a quality control measure during the manufacturing process to ensure that materials meet the required specifications.
For example, impact testing is used to ensure that the metal used in automobile manufacturing can withstand the high stresses of a collision. Impact tests can also be used to compare the properties of different materials.
There are several types of impact tests, including the Izod test, Charpy test, and the drop–weight test. The specific test used depends on the material being tested and the desired results.
The Izod test is the most common type of impact test and is used to measure the impact strength of materials such as metals and plastics.
The test involves suspending a specimen from a support and then striking it with a pendulum. The energy absorbed by the specimen is measured and used to calculate the impact strength.
The Charpy test is used to measure the impact energy of metals. The test involves striking a specimen with a heavy
