The asym definition of the stiffness of granular fill material will have significant value in estimating behavior in deep burial installations. These tests are difficult to perform because large specimens are required with specialized equipment not typically available in commercial test facilities. 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.

There are currently tables of presumptive M s values for use in predicting the deflection of flexible pipe. Presently those values are not known with a high degree of confidence. Recommendations for inclusion of this practice in contract documents for a specific project are given in Appendix X2.

The constrained modulus M s of soil is necessary for the mechanistic design of buried flexible structures and large buried bridge structures.

D23211 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.

There are very few soil laboratories equipped to perform these large-scale tests. A task that 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 ast, required to perform the testing. Aetm, 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.


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. The first objective is to develop a draft test standard for determining the constrained modulus of crushed stone using a large scale 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. These soils were prepared in the astmm and in many cases are not representative of available or commonly used granular backfill soils.

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. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 2d321 will be placed on coordination between the tested samples and the requirements of the LRFD design specifications.

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.

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. Culverts, Soil structure interaction, Granular materials, Crushed aggregates, Soil compaction, Burial depth, Constrained modulus, Modulus, Backfill soils. The project will include four objectives. 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.


A modification of the Bureau of Reclamation test procedure is a plausible approach for initial development of the standard test method.

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. This research will develop constrained modulus and Duncan-Selig design values for crushed stone and common granular backfill soils for culvert installations.

The information may be helpful to the sponsoring committee in keeping the statement up-to-date. Additionally, a minimum of 2 grain size distributions of recycled concrete materials shall be considered. 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.

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

Additionally, this project will develop a test standard for agencies asttm develop constrained modulus design values for recycled concrete materials and for special designs in unique conditions. 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. Since d2312 constrained modulus depends on confining pressure, the values for constrained modulus may increase with depth.
