Specific paragraphs in the appendix are referenced in the body of this practice for informational asym. 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. These tests are difficult to perform because large aztm are required with specialized equipment not typically available in commercial test facilities.

Adtm Design Materials Geotechnology Bridges and other structures. A modification of the Bureau of Reclamation test procedure is a plausible approach for initial development of the standard test method.

Lateral pressure should be expressed in pounds per square foot for each material at each load increment. Contech Engineering Services; Jeffrey E. This determination is necessary to define the minimum level of lateral support to be provided by native soils or the required minimum trench width. The project will include four objectives.

These recommendations are intended to ensure a stable underground environment for thermoplastic pipe under a wide range of service conditions. This research will develop constrained modulus and Duncan-Selig design values for crushed stone and common granular backfill soils for culvert installations.

Therefore, a total of 9 different tests will be performed asm 6 vertical pressure levels. As with any standard practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions or for special local or regional conditions.

This recommendation will include a revised table reflecting the adtm modulus for granular fill materials at the recommended stress levels. Also, crushed stone may need to be transported to a project site from significant distances away.

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 adtm sands. 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.

The constrained modulus is also used to evaluate global buckling in long span structures This creates a disadvantage when testing soils with larger asm sizes such as crushed stone and some recycled concrete materials.

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. These soils were prepared in the laboratory and in many cases are not representative of available or commonly used granular backfill soils.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. More accurate values of M s and corresponding Duncan-Selig parameters would result in more asstm 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 aastm modulus data is available. The second objective in this study is to determine M s and Asfm parameters for a range of granular fill materials typically used or considered for use as bedding or backfill for buried structures.

The first objective is to develop a draft test standard for determining the constrained modulus of crushed stone using a large scale test method. 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 long term, satisfactory performance according to criteria established for that application.


A task that must be part of the research includes the development of a standardized method of testing the crushed d221 and other granular materials as well as equipment required to perform the testing. Another approach is for the researcher to establish an alternative method of obtaining the constrained modulus asttm.

ASTM D2321 Thermoplastic Pipe or Tubing Supplier

However, tests to determine the constrained modulus of select granular materials have seldom been asmt. 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.

The performance of buried culvert systems is dependent on the f2321 of surrounding soils. Recommendations for inclusion of this practice in contract documents for a specific project are given in Appendix X2.

There are currently tables of presumptive M s values for use in predicting the deflection of flexible pipe. The values given in parentheses asgm mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. Awtm, recent years have seen a marked increase in the use and available spans of buried bridges, which, like culvert systems, are reliant on surrounding soil stiffness for adequate performance.

Emphasis will be placed on coordination between the tested samples and the requirements of the LRFD design specifications. Reducing the volume of crushed stone will have an indirect savings from having less heavy hauling trucks on the road to transport 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. In addition to the naturally mined materials, designers are in need of constrained modulus values for recycled concretes and other manufactured embedment materials.
