Re: Loads on culverts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bob,
The NAVFAC DM-7.1-82, Soil Mechanics Design Manual has a nice section
addressing culverts and buried structures in Section 4, page 7-181.  There
may be a more recent version of this.  If you can't find this reference,
perhaps I can fax you the pertinent info.
