ASTM WK71997

    New Guide for Resilience-Based Design of Culvert and Storm Drain Pipe Systems Exposed to Extreme Flood Events

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E60.80 | Committee E60 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    The serviceability of culvert and storm drain pipe systems is critical to maintain the functionality and safety of roadways. This guide provides a framework, including best practices, mitigation measures, and design checks, to enhance the resilience of these systems when exposed to flood events. This guide also provides terminology for the covered approaches.


    Resilience; culvert pipe; storm drain pipe; flood.


    The increased intensity of flood events in the U.S. has highlighted the need to develop a rational approach to design culvert and storm drain pipe systems for resilience to flooding.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
