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

1. Scope

The acquisition, promotion, and dissemination of knowledge, stimulation of research and the development of standards relating to sustainability and sustainable development. The committee shall include environmental, social, economic, and other issues relating to sustainability.
This committee shall support and serve as a resource for other ASTM committees in their activities that include sustainability issues. This support may include dissemination of specific requests for standards throughout ASTM's existing committee base, as well as the maintenance of appropriate liaison relationships internal and external) related to this subject area.
The committee will not duplicate the efforts of existing ASTM technical committees. The work of this committee will be coordinated with other ASTM committees and other organizations having mutual interest.


Resilience; culvert pipe; storm drain pipe; flood.


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.
