Course Description

  • Pipe sizing – state rules and design methods engineers use to size culverts
  • Pipe coating selection – options available
  • Pipe length – how to calculate and order
  • Pipe performance – review slope, interior, flared ends, outlets, velocity, etc….
  • Pipe strength – how soil and pipe strength combine
  • Pipe installation – this is the field portion of the workshop, the hands-on installation of a CMP on a county road - to cover pipe survey, bedding, pipe placement, pipe backfill, compaction, and pipe collars
  • Pipe slip lining – extending pipe life
