|ICS Code (Iron and steel pipes):||23.040.10|
This practice covers procedures, soils, and soil placement for the proper installation of corrugated steel pipe and pipe-arches produced to Specification A 760/A 760M or A 762/A 762M, in either trench or embankment installations. A typical trench installation and a typical embankment (projection) installation are shown in Figs. 1 and 2, 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 A 796/A 796M.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This specification is applicable to design in inch-pound units as A 798 or in SI units as A 798M. 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 A 798M.
