The Concrete Pipe Fill Height Tables can be used to quickly facilitate selection of the proper reinforced concrete pipe for a given installation condition.
The Fill Height Tables are based on the four types of Standard Installation (bedding and haunching). A Type 1 Installation requires the highest level of compaction and the highest quality granular material. A Type 4 Installation requires the lowest level of compaction and lowest quality material. Please note that the Tables assume a soil density of 120 lbs/ft3 (1922 kgs/m3); for other soil densities, designers must accommodate the variation in dead load.
Once bedding type, pipe diameter and fill height are chosen, the Fill Height Tables will provide the required D-Load and the corresponding required class of concrete pipe. If you require help using the Concrete Pipe Fill Height Tables, please do not hesitate to contact us.
