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 wildfire events. This guide also provides terminology for the covered approaches.
KeywordsResilience; culvert pipe; storm drain pipe; wildfire.
The increased occurrence of wildfires in the U.S. has highlighted the need to develop a rational approach to design culvert and storm drain pipe systems for resilience to wildfire.
