Title: Joint Concrete Culvert Pipe Committee
Author(s): ACI Committee J-2
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 292-293
Abstract:The tests referred to in the previous report have been continued and much valuable data secured. The object of these test was to secure information covering loads on culverts in railroad and highway embankments and if possible to discover the laws of variation of such loads. Although these tests are not yet concluded we have in general found certain underlying prinicples to be involved. The ability of a culvert pipe to carry a load after it has been built into a culvet depends on construction conditions as well as upon the strength of the pipe itself.
