FAILURE OF A CAST-IN-PLACE UNREINFORCED CONCRETE CONDUIT

A case history of the failure of a 72-in. (183-cm) cast-in-place, unreinforced concrete conduit constructed near the toe of a highway embankment is described. Theoretical analysis was conducted to predict the behavior of the conduit. It was concluded that the conduit had failed primarily because of the additional lateral load exerted by a 70-ft-high (21.3-m) embankment. The effectiveness of the theoretical analysis was demonstrated by using actual conduit failure.
