The integrated proton-deuteron scattering cross section σ͂ for transversely polarized protons (Pyp) and tensor polarized deuterons (Pxz) constitutes a null test signal for time- reversal invariance violating but P-parity conserving effects. This cross section will be measured at COSY. Using the generalized optical theorem and Glauber theory we study the null-test observable σ͂ for different types of T-odd P-even NN-interactions.The formalism includes full spin dependence of elementary pN-amplitudes and S- and D-components of the deuteron wave function.
