These recommendations are intended to ensure a stable underground environment for thermoplastic pipe under d23321 wide range of service conditions.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. A modification of the Bureau of Reclamation test procedure is a plausible approach for initial development of the standard test method. This determination is necessary to define the minimum level of lateral support to be provided by native soils or the required minimum trench width.

Specific paragraphs in the appendix are referenced in the body of this practice for d232 purposes. This research will develop constrained modulus and Duncan-Selig design values for crushed stone and common granular backfill soils for culvert installations. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

Therefore, it is imperative that reliable values awtm M s and Duncan-Selig soil parameters are developed for crushed stone and other select granular materials.

Little is known about the required lateral forces to provide adequate confining pressure of the crushed stone.

Recommendations for inclusion of this practice in contract documents for a specific project are given in Appendix X2. Similar issues exist when performing triaxial testing of coarse granular soils. Presently those values are not known with a high degree of confidence.

If the backfill is uncompacted dumped crushed stone, use the modulus values of Sn 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.

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 third objective is to determine the lateral pressure generated by the granular fill materials under the designated test conditions.

The constrained modulus is a measured value obtained from a laboratory-conducted one-dimensional compression test and generally requires a test asmt container to be at least 6 times large than the largest particle.

Construction Design Materials Geotechnology Bridges and other structures. The constrained modulus is also used to evaluate global buckling in long span structures D3221 of Use and Privacy Statement.

This research will develop a test method to determine those values as currently one does not exist.

These soils were prepared in the laboratory and in many cases are not representative of available or commonly used granular backfill soils. A commentary on factors important in achieving a satisfactory installation is included in Appendix X1. 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 recommendation will include a revised table reflecting the constrained modulus for granular fill materials at the recommended stress levels. There are currently tables of presumptive M s values for use in predicting the deflection of flexible pipe.

This research project will provide constrained modulus values and Duncan-Selig parameters for 3 gradations of crushed stone and 3 different types of stone. 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. Also, 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.

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 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 for buried structures. The resulting table should give guidance for minimum stiffness of insitu soils or use of composite constrained modulus soft insitu soils.

Also, crushed stone may need to be transported to a project site from significant distances away.

Emphasis will be placed on coordination between the tested samples and the requirements of the LRFD design specifications. 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 project will include four objectives. Follow-on research may require field validation of installed pipe and buried bridges designed with the results of this research and the ability to achieve good compaction levels in confined areas. The first objective is to develop a draft test standard for determining the constrained modulus of crushed stone using a large scale test method. 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.

Characterization of Granular Materials for use in Supporting Buried Structures

The following ASTM standards may be found useful in connection with this practice: These tests are difficult to perform because large specimens are required with specialized equipment not typically available in commercial test facilities. 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.

Another approach is for the researcher to establish an alternative method of obtaining the constrained modulus properties. Additionally, a minimum of 2 grain size distributions of recycled concrete materials shall be considered. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The United States Bureau of Reclamation has historically performed large-scale tests to determine the permeability and compressibility of gravelly soils for use in large earth dams.

ASTM D2321 Thermoplastic Pipe or Tubing Supplier

However, tests to determine the constrained modulus of select granular materials have seldom been performed. There are very few soil laboratories equipped to perform these large-scale tests.

As with any standard practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions or for special local or regional conditions. Reducing the volume of crushed stone will have an indirect savings from having less heavy hauling trucks on the road to transport materials.

This creates a disadvantage when testing soils with larger particle sizes such as crushed stone and some recycled concrete materials.
