Standard Specification for Reinforced Concrete D-Load Culvert, Storm Drain, and Sewer Pipe (ASTM C655M-12b and C655-12b)
standard by American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials, 2014



This specification covers reinforced concrete pipe designed for specific D-loads and intended to be used for the conveyance of sewage, industrial wastes, and storm water, and for the construction of culverts.

Note–Experience has shown that the successful performance of this product depends upon the proper selection of the pipe strength, the type of bedding and backfill, the care that the installation conforms to the construction specifications, and provision for adequate inspection at the construction site. This specification does not include requirements for bedding, backfill, the relationship between field load conditions and the strength designation of pipe, or durability under unusual environmental conditions. These requirements should be included in the project specification.

This specification agrees with ASTM C 655M-12b and C 655-12b except that the use of synthetic fibers is at the option of the owner and the method of acceptance is changed per Sections 11.1, 11.2.2,, 11.4.2, and 11.4.3.
