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

Shear resistance between a geosynthetic and a soil, or a geosynthetic and another geosynthetic is measured. A shear force is applied to the apparatus such that one section of the box is moved in relation to the other. The peak and post-peak shear stresses are plotted against the applied normal stresses. In cases of dispute, comparative tests to determine whether a statistical bias exists among laboratories may awtm advisable. Geosynthetic testing Back to Results Print.

Request Quote Client Login. The geosynthetic and other material is placed within a large-scale direct shear box with an applied normal load on top. In the case of acceptance testing requiring the use of soil, the user must furnish the soil d531, soil parameters, and direct shear test parameters.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

The user zstm results from this test method is cautioned that results at a specified displacement may not be reproducible across d321 and that the relative shear displacement measured in this test at peak strength may not match relative shear displacement at peak strength in a field condition.

The test specimens and conditions, including normal stresses, are generally selected by the user. The test data are presented by a best fit straight line whose slope is the coefficient of friction between the two materials where the shearing occurred.

Testing under this test method should be performed by laboratories qualified in the direct shear testing of soils and meeting the requirements of Practice Despecially since the test results may depend on site-specific and test conditions. The determined value may astk a function of the applied normal stress, material characteristics for example, of the geosyntheticsoil properties, size of sample, moisture content, drainage conditions, displacement rate, magnitude of displacement, and other parameters.

The total shear resistance may be a combination of sliding, rolling, and interlocking of material components. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

The y-intercept of the straight line is the adhesion. Geosynthetic testing Lab Services: The method of test data interpretation for purposes of acceptance should be mutually agreed to by the users of this s5321 method.

The normal loads asttm typically at least three normally represent design conditions.

Results obtained from this method may be limited in their applicability to the specific conditions considered in the testing.

Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. Every effort should be made to identify, as closely as practicable, the sheared area and failure mode of the specimen. For more information, contact: Care should be taken, including close visual inspection of the specimen after testing, to ensure that the testing conditions are representative of those being investigated.

The shear force is recorded with respect to displacement.
