BALANCED DESIGN AND FINITE-ELEMENT ANALYSIS OF CULVERTS

Outline of a method for treating culverts in embankments. Design is accomplished with approximate relations based on empirical determination of arching and maximum induced moment. Relations are provided that p determining the factor o safety against failure and collapse in the various possible modes. A three-dimensional linear finite-element solution is provided for the design example.
