Resistance to rapid crack propagation (RCP) Small scale steady-state test (S4 test).

Test methods

A sample (pipe) containing a fluid under pressure, is subjected to an impact near one end to start a longitudinal crack. The cracking process is designed so that it disrupts the test pipe as little as possible.

Limitation: DN110SDR11; DN250SDR11
