ASTM C76 Reinforced Concrete Culvert, Storm Drain, and Sewer Pipe This specification covers reinforced concrete

pipe 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 C 76 has been developedC 76 ! therefore, no metric e"uivalents are presented in this specification. This specification is a manufacturing and purchase specification only, and does not include re"uirements for bedding, bac#fill, or the relationship between field load condition and the strength classification of pipe. $owever, e%perience has shown that the successful performance of this product depends upon the proper selection of the class of pipe, type of bedding and bac#fill, and care that installation conforms to the construction specifications. The owner of the reinforced concrete pipe specified herein is cautioned that he must correlate the field re"uirements with the class of pipe specified and provide inspection at the construction site. Attention is called to the specification for reinforced concrete &'load culvert, storm drain, and sewer pipe (Specification C 6))*.
