In this paper, the ultimate hoop strength of an industrial (±55 deg)9 filament-wound glass-reinforced epoxy (GRE) pipe as a short-term test is determined according to the ASTM D-1599 standard by performing the internal hydrostatic pressure test. After the test, the failure surface of the pipe is photographed by a high magnification camera, and in addition, the explanations are presented about the type of failure. The main purpose of this study is to compare the results obtained for the ultimate hoop strength and failure mechanisms of the pipe by using the internal hydrostatic pressure test with that by the split disk test method according to the ASTM D-2290 standard in the previous work.
