Formed in 1931, the ASTM International Committee C13 on Concrete Pipe develops standards and publications for concrete pipe, concrete box sections, and concrete manhole sections used for constructing sewers, culverts, and more. Subcommittees focus on the development of specifications, test methods, and definitions for unreinforced and reinforced concrete sewer and culvert pipe, low head pressure pipe, manholes, and more. A diverse membership of over 250 technical experts from 11 different countries manage more than 65 standards on concrete pipe.

During this webinar you will learn about ASTM process and policies and will gain an understanding of how you can contribute to Committee C13, and the importance of your participation to the industry. The committee welcomes all users, technical experts or anyone with a general interest who has a desire to work toward further development of concrete pipe standardization for the benefit of the public.

Webinar participants are encouraged to question and discuss in an open forum at the conclusion of the presentation.
