Caney Fork & Western Railroad Culvert Design

This project consisted of the design of a 3 barrel precast concrete culvert to carry railroad loadings over a stream in Coffee County, Tennessee. The 3 culverts (15 foot span x 6 foot rise) were place side-by-side and were designed to carry a Copper E80 railroad loading.

The culverts were designed in accordance with AASHTO Standard Specifications 17th Edition and AREMA – Part 16 and used the FHWA Box Car Program for Structural Design of Reinforced Concrete Box Culverts. Concrete headwalls were added as a secondary pour using dowel bar splicers.
