A-9 Figure A-8. Fathead specimen. reduced section so nearly all of the failures occur in the reduced section. A drawing of the fathead test specimen is shown in Figure A-8. Test Apparatus The tests were performed with the use of a BT Technology NCTL stress crack frame. A picture of the test set-up is shown in Figures A-9 and A-10. The test specimens are mounted in the frame, which is then placed in a constant temperature bath. Then, the weight tubes are attached to the back of the lever arm to apply the stress. Figure A-10. BFF test set-up--back. Exposure Conditions Screening Test: Five specimens are placed in deionized water at 80C and under an applied stress of 650 psi., and the times- to-failure recorded. A.3.4 Junction Test (FDOT FM 5-572) The junction test is a Florida DOT test method (FM 5-572) and involves a test specimen cut from the pipe itself. An ASTM Type IV dumbbell specimen is used and it is cut from the pipe in a way that leaves the junction between the corru- gation and the liner intact in the center of the test specimen. A cross section of the specimen is shown in Figure A-11. The specimen is loaded in tension and placed in D.I. Water under 650 psi at 80C. The test was performed on six pipe Figure A-9.
