1. Scope *
1.1 This practice describes procedures, soils, and soil placement for the proper installation of corrugated aluminum structural plate culverts and sewers in either trench or embankment installations. A typical trench installation is shown in Fig. 1, and a typical embankment (projection) installation is shown in Fig. 2. Structural plate structures as described herein are those structures factory fabricated in plate form and bolted together on site to provide the required shape, size, and length of structure. This practice applies to structures designed in accordance with Practice B 790/B 790M.
1.2 This practice is applicable to either inch-pound units as B 789 or to SI units as B 789M. Inch-pound units are not necessarily equivalent to SI units. SI units are shown in the text in brackets, and they are the applicable values for metric installation.
1.3 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.
