Pipeline Matting and Cribbing Guideline

Abstract ↓

The purpose of this Practice is to provide guidance on the proper use of matting and cribbing materials. Matting and cribbing are used to provide support for heavy equipment by distributing the weight of the equipment over a large area to avoid exceeding the bearing capacity of the ground upon which it is placed. This Practice covers general guidance for matting and cribbing and should be used in conjunction with equipment manufacturer’s recommendations, geotechnical consultants, general safety guidelines, and good engineering judgment. If there are conflicts between this specification, owner’s requirements, industry standards, and regulatory requirements, the most stringent requirements shall apply.

Reading Practices

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
