Abstract : This user's guide describes a computer program called 'CORTCUL' that can be used for design or investigation of orthogonal, reinforced concrete culverts by either working stress design (WSD) or strength design (SD) procedures. In the design mode, the program determines the required thicknesses and reinforcement areas for given soil loadings and culvert opening sizes. In the investigation mode, material stresses or factors of safety are calculated for specified structural geometries and loadings. The program was developed from specifications furnished by the Corps of Engineers' Computer-Aided Structural Engineering (CASE) Task Group on Culverts and Conduits. The program follows as a minimum the procedures outlined in Engineer Manual 1110-2-2902, 'Conduits, Culverts and Pipes,' dated 3 March 1969. (Author)
