ISO13953 – Tensile testing of butt welded pipe – sizes 90mm to 1200mm

Polyethylene (PE) pipes and fittings - determination of the tensile strength and failure mode of test pieces from a butt-fused joint.

Tensile testing is used to determine the ultimate tensile strength and the fracture appearance of a butt welded joint. It is an accurate guide to a joint’s ductility and work quality. The pipe test specimens are machined across a butt fused polyethylene pipe weld joint and loaded at a constant speed. The stresses are concentrated through the welded joint until failure occurs in this region. The appearance and tensile strength are used as criteria for the evaluation of the pipe butt-fusion joint.
