TEST PROGRAM FOR EVALUATING DESIGN METHOD AND STANDARD DESIGNS FOR PRECAST CONCRETE BOX CULVERTS WITH WELDED WIRE FABRIC REINFORCING

This paper describes the results of a test program developed to verify the design method and the standard designs for precast concrete box culverts reinforced with welded wire fabric. The design equations used to calculate expected test results and the structural analysis used to determine test loads equivalent to design loads are included. The test results are evaluated by comparison with the required design and ultimate loads. The evaluations verify that the design method and the standard designs are adequate and result in satisfactory designs. The results also show that the equations for determining the maximum wire spacing for crack control are conservative.
