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.

Does PVC Require Class I Backfill in All Applications? > Contech Engineered Solutions

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

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

Characterization of Granular Materials for use in Supporting Buried Structures

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. This creates a disadvantage when testing soils with larger particle sizes such as crushed stone and some recycled concrete materials.

The intent d2231 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.


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 d22321 lower cost backfill material if better modulus data is available.

ASTM D2321 – 18

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 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. As a result, there is often uncertainty regarding how best to select appropriate M s values when performing buckling checks on structures analyzed using CANDE.

Therefore, it is imperative that reliable values of M s and Duncan-Selig soil r2321 are developed for crushed stone and other select granular materials. 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.

Recommendations for inclusion of this practice in contract documents for a specific project are given in Appendix X2. 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.

Many of the presumptive values are based on testing only one type of soil and extrapolating the data for other soil types.

Chapter IV. Materials and Installation – Page 4

A commentary on factors important in achieving a satisfactory installation is included in Appendix X1. Another approach is for the researcher asm establish an alternative method of obtaining the constrained modulus properties. The accurate definition of the stiffness of granular fill material will have significant value in estimating behavior in deep burial installations.

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 aatm in confined areas. As with any standard practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions or for special local or regional conditions.

This asstm will include a revised table reflecting the constrained modulus for granular fill materials at the recommended stress levels. 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.

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.

Reducing the volume of crushed stone will have an indirect savings from having less heavy hauling trucks on the road to transport materials.

The first objective is to develop a draft test standard for determining the d3221 modulus of crushed stone adtm a large scale test method. Emphasis will be placed on coordination between the tested samples and the requirements of the LRFD design specifications. This research project will provide constrained modulus values and Duncan-Selig parameters for 3 v2321 of crushed stone and 3 different types of stone. This research will develop a test method to determine those values as currently one does not exist.

Specific paragraphs in the appendix f2321 referenced in the body of this practice for informational purposes. Little is known about the required lateral forces to provide adequate confining pressure of the crushed stone.
