Concrete Box Culvert analysis and Design
Culvert is a tunnel carrying a stream under a road or railway. A culvert may act as a bridge for traffic to pass on it. They are typically found in a natural flow of water and serves the purpose of a bridge or a current flow controller.
Following are the different types of Culvert:
- Bridge culvert
- Metal box culvert
- Box culvert (single or multiple)
- Pipe culvert (single or multiple)
- Pipe-Arch culvert (single or multiple)
- Arch culvert
Box culverts are made up of concrete and especially, RCC (Reinforced Concrete). The most challenging part in constructing a box culvert is that dry surface is needed for installing it. However, due to the strength of the concrete floor, water direction can be changed when a large amount of water is expected. This feature makes box culverts, one of the most commonly found types of the culvert.
