Rapid Crack Propagation Tester (RCP)

RCP- Rapid Crack Propagation Tester is used to determine the critical pressure or critical temperature for rapid crack propagation.

A section of thermoplastics test pipe of specified length, conditioned to a specified test temperature and containing a fluid at a specified test pressure, is subjected to an impact near one end, designed to initiate a fast-running longitudinal crack. The test pipe is subsequently examined to determine whether arrest or propagation of the crack has occurred.
