    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the requirements to determine the time-to-failure of thermoplastic resins for piping applications by uniaxial loading of a grooved tensile test specimen. This grooved tensile specimen achieves a multi-axial stress condition, which mimics the stress condition found in pressurized solid-wall plastic pipe. The ratio of the stress in the axial direction to the transverse direction approximates that for a pressurized solid-wall pipe specimen.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F17 on Plastic Piping Systems, this test method was withdrawn in January 2019 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the requirements to determine the time-to-failure of thermoplastic resins for piping applications by uniaxial loading of a grooved tensile test specimen. This grooved tensile specimen achieves a multi-axial stress condition, which mimics the stress condition found in pressurized solid-wall plastic pipe. The ratio of the stress in the axial direction to the transverse direction approximates that for a pressurized solid-wall pipe specimen.

    1.2 It is intended that the data generated on these specimens be analyzed according to the methodology set forth in Test Method D2837 to generate a long-term strength design value for the material.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
