|Material||Six longitudinal half-sections: 18" x 1.5" x 0.648" to 0.657"||Identification||I-Rod® Material|
|Date received||10-21-1996||Technician||Hugh Myers, Dennis Stanford|
|Specifications||Per Client||Date of Test||10-24-1996|
|Test Equipment||Instron 4507, S / H H1963||Procedure||Load vs Crosshead Extension|
The I-Rod pieces were subjected to compressive loading with a fixture which simulated a 12 inch OD pipeline. Loading was applied, as shown in Figure No. 1, and crosshead extension was measured at 500 lb intervals. The I-Rods were tested in sets of one, two, and three, and a 100 lb pre-load was applied to each test array prior to any measurements. Multiple rods were tested with an 8 inch center to center width on the exterior rods.
The load versus crosshead extension data are presented in the table below and in graphical form. The test set-up is illustrated in Figure No. 1 and various load-rod combinations are illustrated in Figures No. 2 to No. 7.
