Revision of D1598-21 Standard Test Method for Time-to-Failure of Plastic Pipe Under Constant Internal Pressure


Section 10.1 and 10.2 list 2 separate equations that are functionally equivalent, however the second equation could be used as justification to determine the applied pressure without measuring the pipe. This is a potential loop hole in the method that needs to be closed.
