Description: Technical Report
Abstract: A strength design (SD) procedure for buried reinforced concrete circular conduits is presented. The procedure is a combination of results produced through recent work sponsored by the Corps of Engineers and recent studies sponsored by the American Concrete Pipe Association. The SD procedure accounts for both flexure and shear in buried circular conduits subjected to the uniform loading conditions of Engineer Manual 1110-2-2902. Expressions are included that account for the effects of concrete compressive strength and radial tension. A criterion for limiting the flexural reinforcement ratio to prevent unacceptable crack width is also included. This organized presentation of the procedure will enable designers to evaluate further the application of recent research to real problems, with the goal of improving the Corps' SD methods.
