This specification covers procedures, soils, and soil placement for the proper installation of corrugated steel pipe and pipe-arches for sewers and other applications. The supporting soil beneath the pipe must provide a reasonably uniform resistance to the imposed load, both longitudinally and laterally. All pipes shall be unloaded and handled with reasonable care. Material used for bedding beneath the pipe shall meet the requirements specified. Pipe shall not be rolled or dragged over gravel or rock and shall be prevented from striking rock or other hard objects during placement on bedding.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This practice covers procedures, soils, and soil placement for the proper installation of corrugated steel pipe and pipe-arches produced to Specification or , in either trench or embankment installations. This practice also covers installation of corrugated steel pipe for alternative uses that do not involve backfilling or soil-structure interaction.
1.2 A typical trench installation and a typical embankment (projection) installation are shown in , respectively. The pipes described in this practice are manufactured in a factory and furnished to the job in lengths ordinarily from 10 to 30 ft [3 to 9 m], with 20 ft [6 m] being common, for field joining. This practice applies to structures designed in accordance with Practice .
FIG. 1 Typical Trench Installation
FIG. 2 Typical Embankment (Projection) Installation
1.3 This specification is applicable to design in inch-pound units as or in SI units as . Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily equivalent. SI units are shown in brackets in the text for clarity, but they are the applicable values when the installation is to be performed in accordance with .
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
