A length of PVC pipe will weigh one-fifth of an equivalent size section of cast iron pipe, making it easier to install. This product is easily assembled in solvent-welded or gasketed versions that are both intended to be leak-free, once properly assembled Minimum Cover in Traffic Applications Pipe diameters from 4- through 48-inch (100-1200 mm) install ed in traffic areas (AASHTO H-25 or HS-25 loads) must have at least one foot (0.3m) of cover over the pipe crown, while 60-inc h (1500 mm) pipe must have at least 24 inches (0.6m) of cover
12.3.1 Minimum Trench Width Where trench walls are stable (i.e., do not need supports) trench width should be suffi-cient for the safe placement and compaction of haunching. The space between pipe and trench wall must be wider than the compaction equipment used in the pipe zone. Minimum width recommendations are We are designing a driveway under which we need to put a 12 dia. PVC culvert. Can anyone suggest a website where we can find a table that shows minimum cover for H-10 or H-20 loading, for Sch. 40 PVC or Sch. 80 PVC, etc.
In the 2008 NEC, 352.10(G) (PVC Conduit section) refers you back to Table 300.5 (minimum cover requirements, 600V and less). The burial depth of the pipe will depend on what's above it. Table 300.5 Column 3 should give you the answer for PVC Minimum Cover Heights in Trafficked Conditions Pipe with diameters of 4- to 48-inch installed subjected to AASHTO HL-93, H-25 or HS-25 traffic loads must have at least one foot cover over the pipe crown, while 60-inch diameter pipe must have at least 18 inches of cover. Table 15 below summarizes these minimum burial depth recommendations BACKFILL REQUIREMENTS FOR PVC PRESSURE AND GRAVITY PIPES PVC pressure pipe can be installed without special backfill, since external loads are not design-limiting. 20 psi of internal pressure is equivalent to 24 feet of cover. with minimum cover usually governed by frost depth A depth of cover that is less than 2.5 feet is generally not recommended due to the potential damage that can occur to the pipe, and/or the pavement above it 5. Where solid rock prevents compliance with the cover depths specified in this table, the wiring shall be installed in metal or non-metallic raceway permitted for direct burial. The raceways shall be covered by a minimum of 2 inches of concrete extending down to rock
6. For highway loads, the minimum cover shall be measured from the top of the pipe to the bottom of flexible pavement or the top of the rigid pavement. 7. For E80 loads, the cover shall be measured from the top of the pipe to the bottom of the rail tie. 8. 50-year properties of profile wall PVC pipe per AASHTO LRFD table 126.96.36.199-1 used for. The cover over the pipe is critical to the performance of the pipe in service. The cover spreads the downward load of vehicles' wheels over a greater footprint, preventing the collapse that can occur when a heavy force is applied to a focused point on the pipe. The cover must be clean: free of large sticks, stones, and trash 2. for pipes with diameters of 15 inches or less, solid wall pvc pipes meeting aashto m278 may be used. 3. when a pipe is to be extended, the same pipe material and size as in the original installation shall be used. 4. minimum cover shall be provided during construction to protect the pipe from damage. 5. when inst alling a guardrail or a sign.
PVC pipe, being lighter than most pipe materials, should be covered with sufficient overlay and backfill material to prevent inadvertent flotation and movement. A depth of cover over the pipe of 1.5 times the diameter is usually adequate Three (3) feet minimum cover shall be provided for all sewers unless ferrous material pipe is specified. Ferrous material pipe, or other pipe with proper bedding to develop design supporting strength, shall be provided where sewers are subject to traffic bearing loads
Also, it is difficult to provide a minimum 2-foot cover over the top of these culverts. Therefore, private road approaches and driveway culverts can be specified without the protective treatments described in Section 8-5.3.1, and the minimum fill heights listed in Section 8-12 can be reduced to 1 foot (0.3 m) However, in most cases where an AASHTO HL-93 highway load is applied, and the fill height is equal to or greater than 1 foot of cover, a standard Class III pipe or greater will suffice. For standard HL-93 highway loads, the required D-load at fill height increments of 1 foot can be found in the ACPA Fill Height Tables Figure 3 shows minimum pipe spacing although this dimension may need to be increased depending on the type of backfill, the compaction equipment, and the joining method. Figure 3: Minimum Pipe Spacing in Parallel Pipe Installations M D D For D < 24-inch (600mm) M = 1 ft (0.3m) For D > 24-inch (600mm Except for entrances (9 minimum) All pipe should have three feet of cover on it before construction traffic is allowed across it.

I need an equation that will give me the maximum live load, (over the top of the pipe)assuming 90% compaction of fill, or minimum cover necessar Joints between different types of plastic pipe shall be made with an approved adapter fitting, or by a solvent cement joint only where a single joint is made between ABS and PVC pipes at the end of a building drainage pipe and the beginning of a building sewer pipe using a solvent cement complying with ASTM D3138 a) All sizes of Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipes (PCCP), both water and sewer. b) All ductile iron water and sewer pipelines larger than 24-inch diameter. c) All non-PVC sewer pipes equal to and larger than 18-inch diameter. d) Any other critical utility identified on a case by case basis such as electrical ductbanks, etc Permanent lines subject to heavy traffic should have a minimum cover of 24. For light traffic 12 to 18 is normally sufficient for small diameter pipe (typically < 3 diameter). With larger sizes, bearing stresses should be calculated to determine cover required
The minimum cover shall be 18 inches. In applications where 18 inches of cover can not be obtained, cover of 12 inches or more may be allowed with Engineer approval. Trench: Due to its flexible nature, HDPE pipe requires increased trench width and bedding to ensure proper compaction around the pipe walls. Trench bedding shall be a minimum of 4. venerable design standard ANSI A21.12 for Cast Iron pipe. The design method is based on two assumptions: 1. A single concentrated wheel load at the surface, and 2. Uniform load distribution over an effective pipe length of 3 feet.

In most areas, burying the pipes 8 to 12 inches below the surface is adequate. This measurement is from the top of the pipe to the surface of the soil, which means your trenches must be slightly. That is technically correct. However, the first inspection chamber should have a minimum cover depth of 300mm regardless of whether the pipe is encased in concrete or not. The pipe should also have a minimum fall of 1:80 to achieve, um, clearance! The soil pipe should not be grey (as KJX said) as all underground drainage should be brown Avoid large rocks that may damage the pipe or large clods of soil that cause voids and subsequent excessive settling. Depth of Cover- If vehicular traffic is expected over pipe, there should be a minimum of 12 of cover. Typical recommended gravel materials would be pea gravel, 6A stone, or pit-run coarse sand and gravel mixes
usually used to calculate minimum acceptable sewer slopes. Example: Determine the capacity of a poly-vinyl chloride (PVC), 200 mm in diameter, flowing full with a grade of 1%. Assume n = 0.013 Assume that the inside pipe diameter is equivalent to the nominal pipe size. R = Area of liquid (m2) Wetted perimeter (m If these minimum cover heights cannot be met, additional protection of some form should be provided, eg., concrete slab or concrete encasement. It is noteworthy that complete concrete encasement is quite common in critical locations, and this technique allows a lower stiffness pipe and closer spacing, within the constraints of the concrete. PVC Pressure Pipes - minimum curve radius The minimum recommended curve radius for all PVC pressure pipes is 300 x DN if tapping is to be carried out on the curved pipe (see section below for tapping of curved pressure pipe). This is a limit applied to simplify the requirements for PVC pipe generally
d. Pipe Depth - Minimum 4' cover over the top of pipe, drawn to scale in profile view. To avoid existing, proposed, or future potable water laterals and services crossing under force main, the force main shall be installed 12-inches deeper than potable water laterals and pipelines. e For storm or sewer serving commercial or industrial site, 6-inch is the minimum size allowed. There are two pipe products that are most commonly available. If you will have greater than 18 of cover over the pipe as measured from the crown of the pipe, PVC pipe - ASTM D 3034 SDR 35 is acceptable 2. Cut PVC Piping.
