ASTM C412M - 11 standard specification for concrete drain tile (Metric)


Source: ASTM International

This specification covers concrete drain tile, to be used for surface and subsurface drainage. Manufactured drain tile shall be of the following classes: standard-quality concrete drain tile, extra-quality concrete drain tile, heavy-duty extra-quality concrete drain tile, and special-quality concrete drain tile. The concrete shall consist of mineral aggregates, water, and cementitious materials that include Portland cement, fly ash, ground granulated blast furnace slag, aggregates, admixtures and blends, and synthetic fibers. Concrete drain tile shall meet the physical requirement of the specification according to class, depending on soil acidity and sulfate content. Test specimens shall meet the external load crushing strength test requirement of the specification.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

1. Scope

1.1 This specification covers concrete drain tile with internal diameters from 100 to 900 mm, that are intended to be used for surface and subsurface drainage.

1.2 This specification is the metric counterpart of Specification C412.

Note 1—This specification is a manufacturing and purchase specification only and does not include requirements for bedding, backfill, or the relationship between field load condition and the strength classification of drain tile. However, experience has shown that the successful performance of the product depends upon the proper selection of the class of drain tile, type of bedding and backfill, and care that the installation conforms to the construction specifications. The owner is cautioned that he must correlate the field requirements with the class of drain tile specified and provide for or require inspection at the construction site.
