Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. This specification covers the standard requirements for corrugated, metallic-coated steel aatm intended for use in sewers, storm water drainage, underdrains, culverts construction, and similar other uses. These pipes are not normally used for the conveyance of sanitary or industrial wastes.

This specification however does not include requirements for bedding, backfill, or the relationship between earth cover load and sheet thickness of the pipe. The steel sheet used for the pipes, coupling bands, and steel inserts shall be formed from zinc-coated sheet, aluminum-coated sheet, aluminum-zinc alloy-coated sheet, zinc-aluminum-mischmetal alloy-coated sheet, or axtm and aramid fiber composite coated sheet.

The rivets used in riveted pipes shall be of the same material as the base metal specified for the corrugated sheets and shall be thoroughly galvanized or sherardized. Bolts, nuts, asm other threaded items used with joining systems shall be zinc coated by hot dip processing, electroplating, or mechanical processing.


The pipes shall be fabricated in full circular cross section with either annular or helical corrugations while the seams shall be spot welded in such a manner that they will develop the full strength of the pipe and not affect the shape or nominal diameter of the pipe.

A rational analysis or a suitable physical test shall be performed to determine the specified structural properties of the joining systems such as shear, moment, and tensile strengths. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. Pipe covered by this specification is not normally used for a7600 conveyance of sanitary or industrial wastes.

Some environments may be so severe that none of the metallic coatings included in this specification will provide adequate protection.


The several different types of corrugated steel pipe joints provide various qualities. This specification is not intended for routine quality control testing or in-field acceptance testing, but is intended to establish performance limits of the pipe joints, as well x760 the test requirements and test methods for the joints as described herein.

Experience has shown that the successful performance of this product depends upon the proper selection of sheet thickness, type of bedding and backfill, controlled manufacture in the plant, and care in the installation. Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily equivalent.
