Care should be taken, including close visual inspection of the specimen after testing, to ensure that the testing conditions are representative of those being investigated. For more information, contact: In the case of acceptance testing requiring the use of soil, the user must furnish the soil sample, soil parameters, and direct shear d3521 parameters.

The geosynthetic and other material is placed within a large-scale direct shear box with an applied normal load on top. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of asstm standard. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.

Results obtained from this method may be limited in their applicability to the specific conditions considered in the testing. Testing under this test method should be performed by laboratories qualified in the direct shear testing of soils and meeting the requirements of Practice Despecially since the test results may depend on site-specific and d321 conditions. Shear resistance between a geosynthetic and a soil, or a geosynthetic and another geosynthetic is measured.


The method of test data interpretation for purposes of acceptance should be mutually agreed to by the users of this d531 method.

The shear force is recorded with respect to displacement. In cases of dispute, comparative tests to determine whether a statistical bias exists among laboratories may be advisable.

A shear force is applied to the apparatus such that one section of the box is moved in relation to the other. The peak and post-peak shear stresses are plotted against the applied normal stresses. The test data are presented by a best fit straight line whose slope is the ast of friction between the two materials where the shearing occurred.

The y-intercept of the straight line is the adhesion. The user of results d53211 this test method is cautioned that results at a specified displacement may not be reproducible across laboratories and that the relative shear displacement measured in this test at peak strength may not match relative shear displacement at peak strength in a field condition.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability asmt regulatory limitations prior to use. The determined value may be a function of the applied normal stress, material characteristics for example, of the geosyntheticsoil properties, size of sample, adtm content, drainage conditions, displacement rate, magnitude of displacement, and other parameters.

The total shear resistance may be a combination of sliding, rolling, and interlocking of material components. Request Quote Client Login. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Geosynthetic testing Lab Services: The normal loads used typically at least three normally represent design conditions. For Individuals with needing special assistance for disabilities or limited English proficiency Please contact our Title VI specialist at The test specimens and conditions, including ashm stresses, are generally selected by the user. Every effort should be made to identify, as closely as practicable, the sheared area and failure mode of the specimen.
