Standard Specification for Manufacture of Reinforced Concrete Sewer, Storm Drain, and Culvert Pipe for Direct Design (Metric)


This specification covers the manufacture and acceptance of reinforced concrete sewer, storm drain, and culvert pipe designed to conform to the owner's design requirements and to equivalent design specification. The reinforced concrete shall consist of cementitious materials; mineral aggregates; admixtures, if used; and water. The cementitious material shall be composed of cement, ground graduated blast-furnace; fly ash; allowable combinations of cementitious materials; a combination of Portland cement and ground granulated blast-furnace slag; a combination of Portland cement and fly ash; or a combination of Portland cement, ground granulated blast-furnace slag, and fly ash; aggregates; admixtures; air-entraining admixture; chemical admixtures; and steel reinforcement. The joints shall be designed and the ends of the concrete pipe sections shall be formed so that the sections can be laid together to make a continuous line of pipe. The pipe shall conform to the requirements of circumferential reinforcement, longitudinal reinforcement, and joint reinforcement. The specimen shall conform to the specified physical requirements after undertaking the following test procedures: concrete compressive strength testing; acceptance by cylinder tests; and acceptance by core tests.


1.1 This specification covers the manufacture and acceptance of precast concrete pipe designed to conform to the owner's design requirements and to the ASCE 15 or an equivalent design specification.

Note 1: The section on evaluation of core test results (14.3.3) and the Appendix are currently being reballoted.

1.2 This specification is the SI companion to Specification C1417.

1.3 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.
