1.1 This specification covers corrugated steel pipe intended for use for storm water drainage, underdrains, the construction of culverts, and similar uses. Pipe covered by this specification is not normally used for the conveyance of sanitary or industrial wastes. The steel sheet used in fabrication of the pipe has a protective metallic coating of zinc (galvanizing), aluminum, 55 % aluminum-zinc alloy, or zinc-5 % aluminum-mischmetal alloy.

1.2 The several different metallic coatings may not provide equal protection of the base metal against corrosion or abrasion in all environments, or both. Some environments may be so severe that none of the metallic coatings included in this specification will provide adequate protection. Additional protection for corrugated steel pipe can be provided by use of coatings applied after fabrication of the pipe as described in Specification A849, or by use of polymer precoated corrugated steel pipe as described in Specification A762/A762M.

1.3 Section 9 is intended to be applied to corrugated steel pipe joints. 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 as the test requirements and test methods for the joints as described herein.

1.4 This specification does not include requirements for bedding, backfill, or the relationship between earth cover load and sheet thickness of the pipe. 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. The installation procedure is described in Practice A798/A798M.

1.5 This specification is applicable to orders in either inch-pound units as A760 or in SI units as A760M. Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily equivalent. SI units are shown in brackets in the text for clarity, but they are the applicable values when the material is ordered to A760M.
