ASTM International’s forthcoming C1818, Specification for Rigid Synthetic Fiber Reinforced Concrete Culvert, Storm Drain and Sewer Pipe, describes a companion approach to conventional reinforcement in at- or below-grade structures. Developed by ASTM C13 Committee on Concrete Pipe, it recognizes time-dependent properties that require testing of synthetic fiber beyond what would be typical for steel reinforced concrete drainage products.
