STRUCTURAL DESIGN PRACTICE OF PIPE CULVERTS

Reference is made to the methods used by a design and construction agency at the New York State Department of Transportation regarding standards for culvert design and installation procedures. Installation practices for both rigid and flexible pipes are presented. A rating system or durability index covers surface water corrosiveness, abrasiveness, frequency of flow and service ratings for treatment of steel culverts. Finally, design and installation procedures for pipe culverts having special shapes, heavier live loads or unusually large sizes are considered.
