There is increasing evidence that dynamic testing is a most powerful. if not the only practical, method of evaluating whole plastic pipe for its long term service potential. Indeed in some instances this method is used as the primary indicator of performance in the researcNdevelopmentaI process of these products : leaving the most costly and extremely time consuming traditional methods for type approval purposes or compliance with some Standard or Market Approval requirement. This paper indicates how dynamic pressure testing (d.p.t.)may be used in the case where there is a huge product range of both pipe and fittings; a task that would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, using conventional static pressurisation methods.
