Predicting the Creep Rupture Life of Polyethylene Pipe [PE]


Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 1979 Brigthon

Barton, Cherry

A number of techniques have in the past been proposed for the determination of the life of a plastic pipe exposed to pressure. This paper examines the yield criteria which may be applicable to such a system and proposes a new technique for the interpretation of the accelerated creep rupture curves which may be obtained at elevated temperatures. This new technique is shown to lead to a modified Larson-Miller formulation which fits available data accurately.

The 400 kV cables installed by the Central Electricity Generating Board to match their largest 400 kV overhead lines appear to set the limits of conductor size which cable manufacturers produce, Before the Severn installation, with which this Paper in the main deals, the maximum size of conductor available for 400 kV...
