ASTM WK38932

    Work Item: ASTM WK38932 - Revision of A796 / A796M - 10 Standard Practice for Structural Design of Corrugated Steel Pipe, Pipe-Arches, and Arches for Storm and Sanitary Sewers and Other Buried Applications

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A796 / A796M - 13a

    Developed by Subcommittee: A05.17 | Committee A05 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    ITEM 1: The revision would consist of adding a footnote to certain seam strength tables to warn the user that, because the ultimate seam strengths listed are based on tests of staggered seams in assemblies fabricated from panels with a nominal width of 30 in. (750 mm) and include the contribution of additional bolts at the stagger, the listed ultimate seam strengths are only applicable for panels with that nominal width and with stagger. ITEM 2: The revision will provide design provisions for a new 20 x 9.5 in.(500 x 237 mm) profile.
