    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 likely known by most installers who in fact are accepting these tabular designs as being all that is required to manufacture, deliver and install 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 installers of box culverts that the handling conditions in the field should be accounted for by some evaluation in addition to the design requirements of these specifications, C1433, C1433M or C1577.
