The information may be helpful to the sponsoring committee in keeping the statement up-to-date. The intent of the testing is to provide modulus data for a range of backfill and bedding materials commonly considered for use with buried structures.

A task that must be part of the research includes the development of a standardized method of testing the crushed stone and other granular materials as well as equipment required to perform the testing.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Emphasis will be placed on coordination between the tested samples and aztm requirements of the LRFD design specifications. Construction Design Materials Geotechnology Bridges and other structures. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Historical Version s – view previous f2321 of standard. Since the constrained modulus depends on confining pressure, the values for constrained modulus may increase with depth.

ASTM D2321 Thermoplastic Pipe or Tubing Supplier

Additionally, this project will develop a test standard for agencies to develop constrained modulus design values for recycled concrete materials and for special designs in unique conditions.

This is particularly true for flexible culverts, which are soil-structure interaction systems that rely on the stiffness of backfill soils to resist vertical loads. The constrained modulus is also used to evaluate global buckling in long span structures Many of the presumptive values are based on testing only one type of soil and extrapolating the data for other soil types. Additionally, the instrumentation will determine the lateral force exerted on the d232 soils.

Drainage Handbook – Table

This recommendation will include a revised table reflecting the constrained modulus for granular fill materials at the recommended stress levels. As with any standard practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions or for special local or regional conditions.

These soils were prepared in the laboratory and in many cases are not representative of available or commonly used granular backfill soils. The resulting table should give d23221 for minimum stiffness of insitu soils or use of composite constrained modulus soft insitu soils.

The researcher shall review State, Federal, and Local requirements for granular fill materials to establish target grain size distributions to be used for the test samples.

This determination is necessary to define the minimum level of lateral support to be provided by native soils or the required minimum trench width.

Similarly, evaluate a minimum of 3 poorly graded fine aggregate sand materials representing commonly available materials such as but not limited to natural fine to coarse aatm sand deposits, manufactured sand materials, and concrete sands. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Current presumptive values for soils containing crushed stone are based on few, or no, physical soil tests. The intent is to obtain this information for high quality durable crushed rock materials as an upper bound ranging down to fine aggregate materials that are not ideal but may be the only economically feasible fill material as lower bound materials. The addition of the select granular materials grouping s will provide more accurate burial depths for AASHTO LRFD designs of culverts and spans of buried bridge systems using crushed stone.

There are very few soil laboratories equipped to perform these large-scale tests. This research will develop constrained modulus and Duncan-Selig design values for crushed stone and common granular backfill soils for culvert installations. This research will determine lateral pressure values to understand the stiffness that must be provided by in situ soils adjacent to a trench and the required trench widths; presently those values do not exist.

However, because of the numerous flexible plastic pipe products available and the inherent variability of natural ground conditions, achieving satisfactory performance of any one product may d23211 modification to provisions contained herein to meet specific project requirements.

Additionally, a minimum of 2 grain size distributions of recycled concrete materials shall be considered. Culverts, Soil structure interaction, Granular materials, Crushed aggregates, Soil compaction, Burial depth, Constrained modulus, Modulus, Backfill soils. The accurate definition of the stiffness of granular fill material will have significant value in estimating behavior in deep burial installations. Lateral pressure should be expressed in pounds per square foot for each material at each load increment.

Accurately characterizing the relationship between the density and stiffness d2312 crushed stone will enable these soil-structure interaction systems to be designed more cost effectively. However, crushed stone is a preferred embedment and backfill material for buried flexible structures.

Follow-on research may require field validation of installed pipe and buried bridges designed asrm the results of this research and the ability to achieve good compaction levels in confined areas. Therefore, a total of 9 different tests will be performed at 6 vertical pressure levels. A modification of the Bureau of Reclamation test procedure is a plausible approach for initial development of the standard test method.


Also, recent years have seen a marked increase in the use and available spans of buried bridges, x2321, like culvert systems, are reliant on surrounding soil stiffness for axtm performance. Terms of Use and Privacy Statement. The asrm objective is to develop a draft test standard for determining the constrained modulus of crushed stone using a large scale test method.

The second objective in this study is to determine M s and Duncan-Selig parameters for a range of granular fill materials typically used astj considered for use as bedding or backfill for buried structures. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

This research will provide Duncan-Selig soil parameters for granular fill soils more typical of what is actually specified and used than the currently laboratory prepared soil models. A commentary on factors important in achieving a satisfactory installation is included in Appendix X1. This study will provide constrained modulus data to justify the separation of the two soil types and asym constrained modulus values for recommended compaction densities of select granular materials.

Presently those values are not known with a high degree of dd2321. The third objective is to determine the lateral pressure generated by the granular fill materials under the designated test conditions.

Chapter IV. Materials and Installation – Page 4

Little is known about wstm required lateral forces to provide adequate confining pressure of the crushed stone. This research project will provide constrained modulus values and Duncan-Selig parameters for 3 gradations of crushed stone and 3 different types of stone.

These tests are difficult to perform because large specimens are required with specialized equipment not typically available in commercial test facilities.

Recommendations for inclusion of this practice in contract documents for a specific project are given in Appendix X2. The following ASTM standards may be found useful in connection with this practice: As a result, there is often uncertainty regarding how best to aztm appropriate M s values when performing buckling checks on structures analyzed using CANDE.

The performance of buried d22321 systems is dependent on the stiffness of surrounding soils.
