    Rationale

    C13 Specifications are generally understood, at least by the most involved voting members, to not address the handling of the sections as these standards are only designed for the products installed conditions. This fact is not understood by most manufacturers who in-fact are using these tabular designs as being all that is required to manufacture and deliver these sections. Box Culverts are a unique shape as compared to most other products covered by ASTM C13. Further, they can often significantly exceed the product weights of most other C13 covered products. It is our responsibility to inform the designers and users that the handling conditions both in the plant and in the field need to be accounted for by some evaluation in addition to the design requirements of these specifications of C1433.
