Standard Specification for Reinforced Concrete Elliptical Culvert, Storm Drain, and Sewer Pipe
|Publication Date:||1 September 2020|
|ICS Code (Pipes and fittings of other materials):||23.040.50|
This specification covers reinforced elliptically shaped concrete pipe to be used for the conveyance of sewage, industrial wastes, and storm water, and for the construction of culverts.
Pipe designed for placement with the major axis horizontal shall be designated as "Horizontal Elliptical Pipe." Pipe designed for placement with the major axis vertical shall be designated as "Vertical Elliptical Pipe."
This specification is the inch-pound companion to Specification C507M; therefore, no SI equivalents are presented in the specification. Reinforced concrete pipe that conforms to the requirements of C507M are acceptable under this Specification C507 unless prohibited by the owner.
NOTE 1-This specification is a manufacturing and purchase specification only, and does not include requirements for bedding, backfill, or the relationship between field load condition and the strength classification of pipe. However, experience has shown that the successful performance of this product depends upon the proper selection of the class of pipe, type of bedding and backfill, and care that the installation conforms to the construction specifications. The owner of the reinforced concrete pipe specified herein is cautioned that he must correlate the field requirements with the class of pipe specified and provide inspection at the construction site.
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.
