1 Scope
This document specifies a method for determining by extrapolation the long-term ultimate ring bending strain and the calculation of the long-term ultimate relative ring deflection of glass-reinforced thermosetting plastics (GRP) pipes, under wet conditions.
Two methods of loading are given, one using plates the other beam bars.

3.1 vertical compressive force
vertical force, applied to a horizontal pipe to cause a vertical deflection
Note 1 to entry: Vertical compressive force is expressed in newtons.
4 Principle
Each of several cut lengths of pipe is supported horizontally and loaded throughout its length to compress it diametrically to achieve a desired level of strain. The force application surfaces are either bearing plates or beam bars. The pipe is immersed in water at a given temperature for a period of time during which the force remains constant and the increasing vertical deflection is measured at intervals until failure (see 3.9) occurs. The relative vertical deflection at failure [ultimate relative vertical deflection, y u, wet /d m (see 3.6)] is converted into a bending strain at failure (ultimate bending strain, ε u, wet , in percent), either calculated using Formula (1) or determined from a strain-deflection calibration curve (see 10.3).
The strain may also be measured directly by the use of waterproofed strain gauges. The following strain calculations assume that the neutral axis is at the pipe wall midpoint. For pipe wall constructions that produce an altered neutral axis position, it is necessary to evaluate results by substituting 2ȳ for the wall thickness e where ȳ is the distance from the appropriate pipe surface to the neutral axis. The neutral axis position shall be determined using an appropriate method, e.g. calculation or use of strain gauge couples.
