Abstract : Bonded sheath cable designs require bond stability over the wide range of environmental extremes experienced by the cable prior to, during and after installation. In order to select acceptable sheath bonding materials, short term laboratory tests were developed which would predict long term performance. These tests include one which predicts long term bond performance at high temperature in a pressurized environment, and one which correlates with low temperature buckling performance of the cable during installation. The effect of shield corrugations on bond strength is also discussed. (Author)
