Many of the presumptive values are based on testing only one type of soil and extrapolating the data for other soil types. A modification of the Bureau of Reclamation test procedure is a plausible approach for initial development of the standard test method.

The third objective is to determine the lateral pressure generated by the granular fill materials under the designated test conditions. Also, crushed stone may need to be transported to a project site from significant distances away.

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.

Current presumptive values for soils containing crushed stone are based on few, or no, physical soil tests. These tests are difficult to perform because large specimens are required with specialized equipment not typically available in commercial test facilities. 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.

The information may be helpful to the sponsoring committee in keeping the statement up-to-date. 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.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. However, crushed stone is a preferred embedment and backfill material for buried flexible structures. Recommendations for inclusion of this practice in contract documents for a specific project are given in 2d321 X2.

This creates a disadvantage when testing soils with larger particle sizes such as crushed stone and some recycled concrete materials. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.


The intent is to obtain this information for high quality durable crushed aztm 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. These soils were prepared in the laboratory and in many cases are not representative of available or commonly used granular backfill soils.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Specific paragraphs asrm the appendix are referenced in the body of this practice for informational purposes. If the backfill is uncompacted dumped crushed stone, use the modulus values of Sn A task that must be asm 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.

ASTM D2321 – 18

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. 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. Thus, it is incumbent upon the product manufacturer, specifier, d23211 project engineer atsm 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.

Also, recent years have seen a marked increase in the use and available spans of buried bridges, which, e2321 culvert systems, are reliant on surrounding soil stiffness for adequate performance. This recommendation will include a revised table reflecting the constrained modulus for granular fill materials at the recommended stress levels.

The addition of the select granular materials grouping s will provide more accurate burial depths for AASHTO LRFD d3221 of culverts and spans of buried bridge systems using crushed stone.

A commentary on factors important in achieving a satisfactory installation is included in Appendix X1. However, tests to determine the constrained modulus of select granular materials have seldom been performed. In addition to the naturally mined materials, designers are in need of constrained modulus values for recycled concretes and other manufactured embedment materials. The constrained modulus is also used to evaluate global buckling in long span structures Additionally, a minimum of 2 grain size distributions of recycled concrete materials shall be considered.

This research will provide Duncan-Selig soil parameters for granular fill soils more typical d221 what is actually specified and used than the currently laboratory prepared soil models. There are very few soil laboratories equipped to perform these large-scale tests. 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 project will include four objectives. The constrained modulus d23321 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. 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 range of backfill and bedding materials commonly considered for use with buried structures.

Terms of Use and Privacy Statement. The performance of buried culvert systems is dependent on the stiffness of surrounding soils. As with any standard practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions or for special local or regional conditions.

Lateral pressure should be expressed in pounds per square foot for each material at each load increment. 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. Therefore, it is imperative that reliable values of M s c2321 Duncan-Selig soil parameters are developed for crushed stone and other select granular materials. 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.

Reducing the volume of crushed stone will have an indirect savings from having less heavy hauling trucks on the road to transport materials. However, because of the numerous flexible plastic pipe products available c2321 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.
