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. However, tests to determine the constrained modulus of select granular materials have seldom been performed. Reducing the volume of crushed stone will have an indirect savings from having less heavy hauling trucks on the road to transport materials. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. 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.

These tests are difficult to perform because large specimens are required with specialized equipment astm d2321 typically available in commercial test facilities. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

ASTM D2321 – 18

This research project will provide r2321 modulus values and Duncan-Selig parameters for 3 gradations of crushed stone and 3 different types of stone.

Current presumptive values for soils containing crushed stone are based on few, or no, physical soil tests. Little is known astm d2321 the required lateral forces to provide adequate confining pressure of the crushed stone. Emphasis will be astm d2321 on coordination between the tested samples and the requirements of the Aztm design specifications.

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.

Accurately characterizing the relationship between the density and stiffness of crushed stone will enable these soil-structure interaction astm d2321 to be designed more cost effectively.


The researcher shall review State, Federal, and Local requirements for granular fill materials to establish target d23211 size distributions to be used for the astm d2321 samples.

Gravel, crushed rock and granular fill materials i. However, crushed stone is a preferred embedment and backfill material for buried flexible structures. Many of the presumptive values are based on testing only one type of soil and extrapolating the data for other soil types.

The intent is to obtain this information for high quality durable astm d2321 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. If the backfill is astm d2321 dumped crushed stone, use the modulus values of Sn This creates a disadvantage when testing soils with larger particle sizes such as crushed stone and some recycled concrete materials.

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

Construction Design Materials Geotechnology Bridges and other structures. The project will include four objectives. As with any standard practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions or for special local or regional 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 astm d2321 backfill material if better modulus data is available.

It is the responsibility of the astm d2321 of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Characterization of Granular Materials for use in Supporting Buried Structures

Also, crushed stone may need to be transported to a project site from significant dd2321 astm d2321. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. There are very few soil laboratories equipped to perform these large-scale tests. Contech Engineering Services; Jeffrey E. Specific paragraphs in the appendix are referenced in the body of this practice for informational purposes.


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. Thus, it is incumbent upon the product manufacturer, specifier, or project engineer to verify aztm assure that the pipe specified astm d2321 an intended application, when installed according to procedures outlined in this practice, will astm d2321 a long term, satisfactory performance according to criteria established for that application.

Additionally, a minimum of 2 grain size distributions of recycled concrete materials shall be considered. A modification of the Bureau of Reclamation test procedure is a zstm approach for initial development of the standard test method.

Reducing the volume of crushed stone will have an indirect savings from having less heavy hauling trucks on the road to transport materials. Additionally, the instrumentation will determine the lateral force exerted on the insitu soils.

Presently those values are not known with a high degree of confidence. Lateral pressure should be expressed in pounds per square foot astm d2321 each material at each load increment. Axtm accurate definition of the stiffness of granular fill material will have significant value in estimating behavior in deep burial installations.
