We have also conducted a range of survival fatigue tests, completing 13 million cycles on our m-pipe® product across strain ranges from 0.5% to 1.5%, with the majority of the cycles performed at 1% strain, in excess of the anticipated operational strains the pipe will require in operational use.
We are currently completing a series of tests on 2in and 3in pipe to generate an SN curve for our m-pipe® product and the complete dataset will be available in Q1 2016. On a typical customer project we adopt the conventional approach of completing a final survival fatigue test of the actual product to illustrate that the SN curve is conservative.
