REINFORCED CONCRETE PIPE CULVERTS: CRITERIA FOR STRUCTURAL DESIGN AND INSTALLATION

THE STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF A REINFORCED CONCRETE PIPE CULVERT REQUIRES CALCULATION OF THE PROBABLE MAXIMUM LOAD ON THE PIPE, DETERMINATION OF THE INHERENT STRENGTH OF THE PIPE, AND SELECTION OF A BEDDING FOR THE PIPE WHICH WILL INSURE THAT THE FIELD SUPPORTING STRENGTH OF THE COMPLETED STRUCTURE WILL BE ADEQUATE. THE FORMULAS AND LOAD COEFFICIENT DIAGRAMS NECESSARY TO MAKE SUCH CALCULATIONS ARE INCLUDED. CHARTS GIVE THE LOAD ON THE PIPE AT VARIOUS HEIGHTS OF FILL FOR THE FOUR CLASSES OF BEDDING IN COMBINATION WITH APPROPRIATE PROJECTION RATIOS AND PROVIDE A VISUAL COMPARISON OF THE LOAD CARRYING CAPACITY OF PIPE FOR THOSE COMBINATIONS.
