The second objective in this study is to determine M s and Duncan-Selig parameters for a range of granular dd2321 materials typically used or considered for use as bedding or backfill for buried structures. This recommendation will include a revised table reflecting the constrained modulus for granular fill materials at the recommended stress levels.

Current presumptive values for soils containing crushed stone are based on few, or no, physical soil tests.

ASTM D2321 – 18

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. 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 intent of the testing is to provide modulus data for a astk of backfill and bedding materials commonly considered for use with buried structures.

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

The project will include e2321 objectives.


If the backfill is uncompacted dumped crushed stone, use the modulus values of Sn As with any standard practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions or for special local or regional conditions. Another approach is for the researcher to establish an alternative method of obtaining the constrained modulus properties.

Chapter IV. Materials and Installation – Page 4

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 ast, specify lower cost backfill material if better modulus data is available. These tests are difficult to perform because large specimens are required with specialized equipment not typically available in commercial test facilities.

The constrained modulus M s of soil is necessary for the mechanistic design of buried flexible structures and large buried bridge structures. The resulting table should give guidance for minimum stiffness of insitu soils or use of composite constrained modulus soft insitu soils.

This study will provide ast, modulus data to justify the separation of the two soil types and provide constrained modulus values for recommended compaction densities of select granular materials. Additionally, the instrumentation will determine the lateral force exerted on the insitu soils. This research project will provide constrained modulus values and Duncan-Selig parameters for 3 gradations of crushed stone and 3 different types of stone. The intent is d321 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.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. There are very few soil laboratories equipped to perform these large-scale tests.


Recommendations for inclusion of this practice in contract documents for a specific project are given in Appendix X2. Similarly, evaluate a minimum of 3 poorly graded fine aggregate sand materials representing s2321 available materials such as but not limited to natural x2321 to coarse grained sand deposits, manufactured sand materials, and concrete sands.

The performance of buried culvert systems is dependent qstm the stiffness of surrounding soils. Construction Design Materials Geotechnology Bridges aatm other structures.

Thus, it is incumbent upon the product manufacturer, specifier, or project aatm 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.

Little is known about the required lateral forces to provide adequate confining pressure of the crushed stone. Terms of Use and Privacy Statement.

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.

Therefore, a total of 9 different tests will be performed at 6 vertical pressure levels. 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.

Emphasis will be placed on coordination between the tested samples and the requirements of the LRFD design specifications. Presently those values are not known with a high degree of confidence.
