Assuring Structural Integrity and Reliability of Precast Box Culverts Precast box culverts have gained in popularity in recent years for use as underpasses, tunnels, subways, bridges, stream culverts, material handling, storage, watertight tanks and more. Available in a variety of standard sizes as well as custom designs, precast box culverts can be built with features meeting the exact needs of any project: toe walls, manhole openings, headwalls, wingwalls, pipe openings, keyed ends, watertight joints and more. To answer these questions, it is important to consider several factors that affect the quality and performance of a precast box culvert. Engineering Design Design of a box culvert by a qualified structural engineer is critical to its performance and avoidance of premature failure. While a box culvert appears to be a rather simple four-sided structure three sides in special applications , a box culvert is subjected to complex loads in its typical application.

DOI: Patel , Sagar Jamle Published Engineering International Journal of Advanced Engineering Research and Science Box culverts are the monolithic structure made to pass across a roadway, railway lines etc. Embankments are used to balance the flood water on both sides. Box takes various types of loads generated by water, traffic, cushion, soil etc. This work deals with complete design of box culvert manually and study the design parameters such as effect of earth pressure, depth of cushion at the top slab of culvert, factor such as braking force, Impact load, Live load, Dispersal of load through tracked or… Expand.

Abstract:- Box culverts are very important part of a transportation network as they provide a cost-effective alternate to substantial bridges. A culvert may be a bridge like structure designed to allow vehicle or pedestrian traffic to cross over the watercourse while permitting suitable opening for the water. They are normally cheaper than bridges, which make them the natural stream passes through channels.
