Historical Standard: ASTM A746-99 Standard Specification for Ductile Iron Gravity Sewer Pipe
SUPERSEDED (see Active link, below)
1.1 This specification covers 4 to 64-in. ductile iron gravity sewer pipe centrifugally cast with push-on joints. This specification may be used for pipe with other types of joints, as may be agreed upon at the time of purchase.
1.2 This specification covers trench load design procedures for both cement-lined pipe and flexible-lined pipe. Maximum depth of cover tables are included for both types of linings.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
