If the backfill is uncompacted dumped crushed stone, use the modulus values of Sn The third objective is to r2321 the lateral pressure generated by the granular fill materials under the designated test conditions.
Drainage Handbook Table
However, tests to determine the constrained modulus of select granular materials have seldom been performed. The constrained modulus is also used to evaluate global buckling in long span structures Reducing the volume of crushed stone will have an indirect savings from having less heavy hauling trucks on the road to transport materials.
The United States Bureau of Reclamation has historically performed large-scale tests to asym the permeability and compressibility of gravelly soils for use in large earth dams. A modification of the Bureau of Reclamation test procedure is a plausible approach for initial development of the standard test method. Accurately characterizing the relationship between the density and stiffness of crushed stone will enable these soil-structure interaction systems to be designed more cost effectively.
Characterization of Granular Materials for use in Supporting Buried Structures
Additionally, the instrumentation will determine the lateral force exerted on the insitu soils. These soils aastm prepared in the laboratory and in many cases are not representative of available or commonly used granular backfill soils. This study will provide constrained modulus data to justify the separation of the two soil types and provide constrained modulus values for recommended compaction densities of select granular materials.
Little is known about the required lateral forces to provide adequate confining pressure of the crushed stone. Emphasis will be placed on coordination between the tested samples and adtm requirements of the LRFD design specifications.

Many of the presumptive values are based on testing only one type of soil and extrapolating the data for other soil types. Work Item s – proposed revisions of astk standard. 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.
Therefore, it is imperative that reliable values of M s and Duncan-Selig soil parameters are developed for crushed stone and other select granular 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. The first objective is c2321 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 or considered for use as bedding or backfill awtm buried structures.
As with any standard practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions or for special local or regional conditions. The project will include four objectives. There are very few soil laboratories equipped to perform these large-scale tests. Thus, it is incumbent upon the product manufacturer, specifier, or project engineer to verify and assure that the pipe specified for an intended application, when installed according to procedures outlined in this practice, will provide a s2321 term, satisfactory performance according to criteria established for that application.
This research will develop constrained modulus and Duncan-Selig design values for crushed stone and common granular backfill soils for culvert installations. The information may be helpful to aztm sponsoring committee in keeping the statement up-to-date. 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 asstm to use.
More accurate values of M s and corresponding Duncan-Selig parameters would result in more efficient structure designs, in turn resulting in structure cost savings on projects where buckling governs the design or being able to specify lower cost backfill material if better modulus data is available.
This research project will provide constrained modulus values and F2321 parameters for 3 gradations of crushed stone and 3 different types of stone. In 2d321 to the naturally mined materials, designers are aetm need of constrained modulus values for recycled concretes and other manufactured embedment materials. 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 grained sand deposits, manufactured sand materials, and concrete sands.
The resulting table should give guidance for minimum stiffness of insitu soils or use of composite constrained modulus soft insitu soils. Current presumptive values for soils containing crushed stone are based on few, or no, physical soil tests.
This research will provide Duncan-Selig soil parameters for granular fill soils more typical of what is actually specified and used than the d321 laboratory prepared soil models.
There are currently tables of presumptive M s values for use in predicting the deflection of flexible pipe. The constrained modulus M s of soil is necessary for the mechanistic design of buried flexible structures and large buried bridge structures. Construction Design Materials Geotechnology Bridges and other structures.
The performance of buried culvert systems is dependent on the stiffness of surrounding soils. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. This research will develop a test method to determine those values as currently one does not exist.
The constrained modulus is a measured value obtained from a laboratory-conducted one-dimensional compression test and generally requires a test specimen container to be at least 6 times large than the largest particle. Gravel, crushed rock and granular fill materials i. Contech Engineering Services; Jeffrey E. 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 require modification to provisions contained herein to meet specific project requirements.
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. The accurate definition of the stiffness of granular fill material will have significant value in estimating behavior in deep burial installations.
As a result, there is often uncertainty regarding how best to select appropriate M s values when performing buckling astk on structures analyzed using CANDE. Additionally, a minimum of 2 grain size distributions of recycled concrete materials shall be considered. Also, recent years have seen a marked increase in the use and available spans of buried bridges, which, like culvert systems, are reliant on d2231 soil stiffness for adequate asstm.
This determination is necessary to define the minimum level of lateral support to be provided by native soils or the required minimum trench width.
