ASTM C655: Standard Specification for Reinforced Concrete D-Load Culvert, Storm Drain, and Sewer Pipe
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
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.
A complete metric companion to Specification C655 has been developed-Specification C655M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
NOTE 1-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.
