In addition to the naturally e2321 materials, designers are in need of constrained modulus values for recycled concretes and other manufactured embedment materials. This research will develop a test method to determine those values as currently one does not exist. This research will develop constrained modulus and Duncan-Selig design values for crushed stone and common granular backfill soils for culvert installations.

The constrained modulus M s of soil is asttm for the mechanistic design of buried flexible structures and large buried bridge structures. 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. A commentary on factors important in achieving a satisfactory installation is included in Appendix X1.

This research project will provide constrained modulus values and Duncan-Selig parameters for 3 gradations of crushed stone and 3 different types of stone. Presently those values are not known with a high degree of confidence. 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.

Since the f2321 modulus depends on confining pressure, the values for constrained modulus may increase with depth. Also, crushed stone may need to be transported to a project site from significant distances away. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

Similar issues exist when performing triaxial testing of coarse granular soils. 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 dd2321 application.


These recommendations are intended to ensure a stable underground environment for thermoplastic pipe under a wide range of service conditions. Emphasis will be placed on coordination between the tested samples and the requirements of the LRFD design specifications. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Additionally, a minimum of 2 grain size distributions of recycled concrete materials shall be considered.

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. 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.

However, crushed stone is a preferred embedment and backfill material for buried flexible structures. Contech Engineering Services; Jeffrey E. 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.

The intent is 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.

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.

Current presumptive values for soils containing crushed stone are based on few, or no, physical soil tests. A task d2231 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 provide Duncan-Selig soil parameters for granular fill soils more typical of what is actually specified and used than the currently laboratory d22321 soil models.

However, tests to determine the constrained modulus of select granular materials have seldom been performed. Another approach is for the researcher to establish an alternative method of obtaining the constrained modulus properties. If the backfill is uncompacted dumped crushed stone, use the modulus values of Sn As with any standard practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions or for special local or regional conditions.

The constrained modulus is also used to evaluate global buckling in long span structures 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.

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

Gravel, crushed rock and granular fill materials i. Little is known about the required lateral forces to provide adequate confining pressure of the crushed stone. Specific paragraphs in the appendix are referenced in the body of this practice for informational purposes. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

The researcher shall review State, Federal, and Local requirements for granular r2321 materials to establish target grain size distributions to be used for the test samples. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. A modification of the Bureau of Reclamation test procedure is a plausible approach for initial development of the d221 test method.

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