TO develop a new test method to test chemical resistance to internal fluids and chemical compatibility with external chemicals by pressure testing of plastic pipe and fittings.
Current test methods use tensile bars, plaques, test specimens cut from pipe. Various stress are applied generally uniaxially. Plastic pipe and fittings in service are subject to triaxial stresses very different from the applied stresses in current test methods.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.Back to Top
