Design of Conduits, Culverts and Pipes
In Design of Conduits, Culverts and Pipes , you'll learn ...
- Guidance on the design and construction of conduits, culverts, and pipes
- How to account for various loadings on culverts, including trench/embankment earth loadings, highway loadings, surface concentrated loadings, and internal/external fluid pressures
- Design considerations for cast-in-place conduits for dams and the use of reinforced concrete pipe, corrugated metal pipe, plastic pipe, ductile iron pipe, and steel pipe for other applications
- How material selection of culverts and pipes impacts life cycle performance
This course provides guidance on the design and construction of conduits, culverts, and pipes, as well as design procedures for different types of loadings. Reinforced concrete conduits are often used for medium and large dams, while precast pipes are used for small dams, urban levees, and other levees where public safety is at risk or substantial property damage could occur. Culverts are typically used for roadway, railway, and runway crossings.
The course examines design procedures for conduits, culverts, and pipes as they relate to life cycle considerations, material types used, loading types applied, and construction methods utilized. It also provides guidelines for applying different types of loadings to culverts such as (a) internal/external pressure, (b) vertical and horizontal pressures due to groundwater, surcharge water, and concentrated live loads, (c) trench earth loading with or without superimposed fill, and (d) embankment earth loads.
This course is most relevant to engineers involved in, or wishing to gain knowledge of, the design of conduits, culverts, and pipes.
