Abstract Time dependent defects such as localised corrosion in cast iron water mains are the primary cause of the failure of in-service pipes. Although it is impossible to predict when a pipe will fail, due to stochastic nature of corrosion process, it is feasible to estimate whether it is sufficiently deteriorated for the failure to be likely.
