1.1 This practice describes procedures, soils, and soil placement for the proper installation of corrugated aluminum culverts and storm sewers in either trench or projection installations. A typical trench installation is shown in , and a typical embankment (projection) installation is shown in . The pipes described in this practice are manufactured in a factory and furnished to the job in lengths ordinarily from 10 to 30 ft [3 to 9 m], with 20 ft [6 m] being common, for field joining. This practice applies to structures designed in accordance with Practice B 790/B 790M.
1.2 This practice is applicable to either inch-pound units as B 788 or to SI units as B 788M. Inch-pound units are not necessary equivalent to SI units. SI units are shown in the text in brackets, and they are the applicable values for metric installation.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
