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

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.

Keywords

Resilience; culvert pipe; storm drain pipe; flood.

Rationale

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.
