ASTM International - ASTM C1504-13
Standard Specification for Manufacture of Precast Reinforced Concrete Three-Sided Structures for Culverts and Storm Drains
|Publication Date:||15 February 2013|
|ICS Code (Pipes and fittings of other materials):||23.040.50|
1.1 This specification covers single-cell precast conventionally reinforced concrete three-sided structures intended to be used for the construction of culverts and for the conveyance of storm water.
1.2 A complete metric companion to Specification C1504 has been developed-C1504M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
Note 1-This specification is primarily a manufacturing and purchasing specification. The successful performance of this product depends upon the proper selection of the geometric section, bedding, backfill, and care that the installation conforms to the construction specifications. The purchaser of the precast reinforced concrete three-sided structure specified herein is cautioned that he must properly correlate the loading conditions and the field requirements with the geometric section specified and provide for inspection at the construction site.
1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
