2 What is There to Talk About ? MaterialsCorrugations & GaugesCoatingsStructural DesignFoundation ConsiderationsBackfill ProceduresProper Cover RequirementsCSP Joint Options
3 CONTECH Construction Products, Inc. 80 years of Metal Product Innovation
4 Corrugated Metal Pipe Design Criteria HydraulicsCan You Achieve the Flow RequirementsStructural CapacityCan You Handle the Loading ConditionDurabilityCan You Last 75 YearsProve It !Economy
5 Structural Design 1. Determine the loads on the pipe. 2. Calculate ring compression.3. Perform basic strength and stiffness checks.a) wall strengthb) seam strengthc) handling stiffness4. Ensure minimum cover.5. Check and account for corner pressureson multiple radius pipes. (i.e. pipe arches)
6 Physical Strength Structural Design Installation Stiffness Importance of a Quality BackfillDeflection: Modified Iowa FormulaDeflection = LoadPipe Stiffness + Soil StiffnessSoil Stiffness Accounts for 90% of Total Stiffness
7 Approved ODOT Sizes CONTECH size range from 6 “ to 144 “. ODOT Sizes: /4” or 1/2” deep 6” ”” deep 36” ”Spiral Rib 18” ”ALUMINIZED Steel Type 2 OnlyandFiber Bonded CSP No Longer Available !
8 Durability How Long Should it Last ? 50 years or yearsWhat is the Design Service Life Required ?ODOT has Durability Charts for Metal PipeL & D Manual: andALT2 provides a minimum of 75 years for 16ga when 5<pH<9 and R> As the gage is increased, the service life increases.

11 Unloading and Handling Easily shipped in “nested” bundles (fewer trucks)Easy to handle and unload:Light weight ( light equipment )Lifting Lugs for Large Diameterused with slings and hooksSlings or fork lift for smaller DiameterDO NOT Roll off truckLong Joints ( 20 ft - 40 ft )Small outside Diameter
12 Proper Bedding Uniform Support Lateral Longitudinal Well graded granular materialFree of frozen soil, sod, and large rocksUpper few inches should be relatively loose to allow corrugations to seat in bedding
13 Proper Foundation Uneven Foundation Uniform Foundation Pipe Pipe Soft FirmSoftPipeUneven FoundationPipeUniform Foundation
14 Soft Foundations Soft Excavate Soft Soil and Replace with Highly compactedgranular materialSoft In-Situ SoilWDSoftShape BottomFor Pipe ArchFor pipe-arch, excavate under pipe and replace withgranular material only as deep as is necessary toobtain stable bed to install pipe
15 Minimum Permissible Spacing For Multiple Installations ArchesPipe ArchesSpanPipeDiameterUp to 36”……..12”36” to 108”……1/3 span108” to 189”…..36”Diam.Up to 24”…..12”24” to 72”….1/2 diam.72” and over..36”
16 Backfill Satisfactory material: Well graded granular, w/ little to no plasticityClean/dense/stable/drainable soilProper placement (6”- 8” lifts on each side)Proper Compaction (90% Std. Density)AASHTO T99Maintain minimum Height of CoverInstallation conditions:Embankment or Trench
17 Proper Backfill - Embankment Diameter8” LiftsThoroughly compact fill in 8” max loose lifts. Keep fill at same level on both sides of pipe.Lifts Should extend at least 1 pipe diameter on each side
19 Tamping Under the Haunches SpanDiameterTamperedFillCare must be taken to assure that voids and soft spotsare not left under the haunches of pipe
20 Proper Backfill: Pipe Arches SpanCompacted Layersin 8” LiftsCompacted to max density belowand beside the haunchesStable
