Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers single-cell precast reinforced concrete box sections cast monolithically and intended to be used for the construction of culverts and for the conveyance of storm water, industrial wastes and sewage. The reinforced concrete shall consist of cementitious materials, mineral aggregates and water, in which steel has been embedded in such a manner that the steel and concrete act together. The precast reinforced concrete box sections shall be produced with tongue and groove ends. The box section shall be cured using any of the following methods or combinations thereof: steam curing; water curing; and membrane curing. Compression tests for determining concrete compressive strength shall be allowed to be made on either standard rodded concrete cylinders or concrete cylinders compacted and cured in like manner as the box sections, or on cores drilled from the box section.
