ASTM WK45777

    Revision of D1598 - 02(2009) Standard Test Method for Time-to-Failure of Plastic Pipe Under Constant Internal Pressure

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D1598 - 02(2009)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.40 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Clause 3 (Terminology and definitions) needs to be revised to more clearly present the wording for the various definitions of failure, which as currently written has lead to confusion, and to reorder the presentation to reflect the proper clause -- sub clause format.


    internal pressure; plastic pipe; time-to-failure; Failure end point--plastics; Hoop stress test; Hydrostatic testing; Long-term hydrostatic strength/pressure; Reinforced thermosetting plastics (RTP); Thermoplastic pipe/tube/fittings; Time-to-failure (TTF);
