Abstract The sensitivity of high density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembranes to stress cracking is evaluated under accelerated conditions at a constant stress. The test specimens are according to ASTM D-1822, and are of the dumbbell shape with a constant length in the central section. The accelerated testing conditions consist of a 10% Igepal wetting solution in tap water, at a constant temperature of 50 C. The applied stresses are from 30% to 50% of the yield stress. It was found that most commercially available HDPE sheet material performs quite well in this type of test. Only one specimen in 80 showed any evidence of cracking and this may have been caused by other reasons. Testing of field fabricated seams, however, resulted in relatively large numbers of cracked specimens. Many of these test specimens showed signs of overgrinding and/or overheating. The results indicate that great care and excellent workmanship are required in the field fabrication of HDPE seams.
