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. Therefore, it is imperative that reliable values of M s and Duncan-Selig soil parameters are developed for crushed stone and other select granular materials.

This research d232 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. However, tests to determine the aastm modulus of select granular materials have seldom been performed.

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

Additionally, the instrumentation will determine the lateral force exerted on the insitu soils. The addition of the select granular materials grouping s will provide more accurate burial depths for Astk LRFD designs of culverts and spans of buried bridge systems using crushed stone.


The project will include four objectives. A commentary on factors important in achieving a satisfactory installation is included in Appendix X1.

Drainage Handbook – Table

There are currently tables of presumptive M s values for use in predicting the deflection of flexible pipe. The following ASTM standards may be found useful in connection with this practice: 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.

Also, crushed stone may need to be transported to a project site from significant distances away. 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. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

This research will develop constrained modulus and Duncan-Selig design values for crushed stone and common granular d321 soils for culvert installations. This recommendation will include a revised table reflecting the constrained modulus for granular fill materials at the recommended stress levels.

The third objective is to determine the lateral pressure generated by the granular fill materials under the designated test conditions. The constrained modulus is also used to evaluate global d23321 in long span structures Little is known about the required lateral forces to provide adequate confining pressure of the crushed stone.

These soils were prepared in the laboratory and in many cases are not representative of available or commonly used granular backfill soils. 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 resulting table should give guidance for minimum stiffness of insitu soils or use of composite constrained modulus soft insitu soils. Presently those values are not known with a high degree of confidence. 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.

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. 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.

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.

Additionally, a minimum of 2 grain size distributions of recycled concrete materials shall be considered. 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.
