ASTM WK31703

    New Practice for Minimum Structural Design Loading for Monolithic or Sectional Precast Concrete Water and Wastewater Structures using AASHTO LRFD Design

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: C27.30 | Committee C27 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Provide minimum loads for design of monolithic or sectional precast concrete water and wastewater structures used in state highway right of way (ROW). Exceptions are concrete pipe, box culverts, utility structures,septic tanks, and material covered in Specification C478.

    There is no standard for LRFD loads on water and wastewater structures. Federal government mandate is that each STATE DOT use LRFD design where projects are on State or Federal property/right of way.


    LRFD, Load Resistance Factor Design, traffic, surcharge, wastewater, highway,truck load, below ground structures, HL-93 live load, concrete vault, wet wells, pumping station, catch basin, grease trap, oil/water separator.
