RIGID PIPE PROOF TESTING UNDER EXCESS OVERFILLS WITH VARYING BACKFILL PARAMETERS: SECTION I, (VOLUME 2): CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS, REINFORCED CONCRETE PIPE

This paper is a brief summary of observations, conclusions and recommendations for implementation is presented for the study of an 84-in. (2.14 m), reinforced concrete pipe at Cross Canyon. Included is a project "road-map," providing a directory to areas of the final report where more detailed information may be found. The study reiterated the structural advantage of pipe entrenchment in preconstructed embankment pads.
