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

Additionally, a qstm of 2 grain size distributions of recycled concrete materials shall be considered. 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 project will include four objectives.

The intent of the testing is to provide modulus data for a range of backfill and d321 materials commonly considered for use with buried structures. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

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

The performance of buried culvert systems is dependent on the stiffness of surrounding soils. Reducing the volume of crushed stone will have an indirect savings from having less heavy hauling trucks on the road to transport materials. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. In addition to the naturally mined materials, designers are in need of constrained modulus values for recycled concretes and other manufactured embedment materials. This research will provide Duncan-Selig soil parameters for granular fill soils more typical of what is actually specified and used than the currently laboratory prepared soil models.

Emphasis will be placed on coordination between the tested samples and the requirements of the LRFD design specifications.

Terms of Use and Privacy Statement. This creates a disadvantage when testing soils with larger particle sizes such as crushed stone and some recycled concrete materials. Accurately characterizing the relationship between the density and stiffness of crushed stone will enable these soil-structure interaction systems to be designed more cost effectively.


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

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.

Presently those values are not known with a high degree of confidence.

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. 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. However, because of the numerous flexible plastic pipe products available and the inherent variability of natural ground conditions, achieving satisfactory performance of any one product may require modification to provisions contained herein to meet specific project requirements.

However, crushed stone is a preferred embedment and backfill material for buried flexible structures. 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.

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 specify lower cost backfill material if better modulus data is available. The constrained modulus is also used to evaluate global buckling in long span structures 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.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Another approach is for the researcher to establish an alternative method of obtaining the constrained modulus properties. Many of the presumptive values are based on testing only one type of soil and extrapolating the data for other soil types. 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 values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

The constrained modulus is a measured value obtained from a laboratory-conducted one-dimensional compression test and generally requires a test specimen container to 2d321 at least 6 times large than the largest particle.

Please click here if you wish to share information or are aware of any research underway that addresses issues in this astj needs r2321. Since the constrained modulus depends on confining pressure, the values for d3221 modulus may increase with depth. The information may be helpful to the sponsoring committee in keeping the statement up-to-date. 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.

These recommendations are intended to ensure a stable underground environment for thermoplastic pipe under a wide range of service conditions. The accurate definition of the stiffness of granular fill material will have significant value in estimating behavior in deep burial installations. 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.

There are currently tables of presumptive M s values for use in predicting the deflection of flexible pipe. Culverts, Soil structure interaction, Granular materials, Crushed aggregates, Soil compaction, Burial depth, Constrained modulus, Modulus, Backfill soils. 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 zstm.

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

Characterization of Granular Materials for use in Supporting Buried Structures

These soils were prepared in the laboratory and in many cases are not representative of available or commonly used granular backfill soils. The constrained modulus M s of soil is necessary for the mechanistic design of buried flexible structures and large buried bridge structures.

Additionally, the instrumentation will determine the lateral force exerted on the qstm soils.
