Plastics piping systems — Polyolefin pipes and mechanical fitting assemblies — Test method for the resistance to end load (AREL test)

ISO 19899:2010 specifies a method to determine, for mechanically jointed polyolefin pipe and fitting assemblies in sizes of nominal outside diameter of less than or equal to 63 mm, the effect of component relaxation and creep on the resistance of the assembly to pipe pull out under the long-term application of a constant and longitudinally applied force.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 19899 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 138, Plastics pipes, fittings and valves for the

transport of fluids, Subcommittee SC 5, General properties of pipes, fittings and valves of plastic materials and

their accessories — Test methods and basic specifications.

Introduction

The Accelerated Relaxation and End Load test (AREL) was introduced initially in the gas industry product

standard for full end-load-bearing mechanical fittings designed for connection to PE gas pipes. Its introduction

as a stand-alone test method covering polyolefin pipes provides the opportunity for the method to be used in

other application areas.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 19899:2010(E)
Plastics piping systems — Polyolefin pipes and mechanical
fitting assemblies — Test method for the resistance to end load
(AREL test)
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies a method to determine, for mechanically jointed polyolefin pipe and fitting

assemblies in sizes of d u 63 mm, the effect of component relaxation and creep on the resistance of the

assembly to pipe pull out under the long-term application of a constant and longitudinally applied force.

The susceptibility of the polyolefin pipe to stress crack failure initiated by the joint assembly is also examined.

NOTE For sizes d > 63 mm, the method is under development.

4 Principle

A test piece assembly of a polyolefin pipe(s) and a mechanical fitting, suspended in a bath of water or in air at

80 °C is subjected to a constant tensile force, F, applied along the longitudinal axis of the pipe for a defined

period of time. The force, F, is then removed and the assembly conditioned to 23 °C before testing for

leakage.

NOTE 1 The magnitude of the applied force is intended to simulate the combined effect of internal pressure, thermal

contraction and secondary bending effects arising from loss of soil support around the pipe close to the fitting. For sizes

d W 355 mm, experience has suggested loss of localized soil support is less likely to result in significant longitudinal

bending stresses and consequently th
