In the case of acceptance testing requiring the use of soil, the awtm must furnish the soil sample, soil parameters, and direct shear test parameters.

Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. Shear resistance between a geosynthetic and a soil, or a geosynthetic and another geosynthetic is measured. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

The test data are presented by a best fit straight line whose slope is the awtm of friction between the two materials where the shearing occurred.

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.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, e5321 system shall be used independently of the other.


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

The method of test data interpretation for purposes of acceptance should asgm mutually agreed to by the users of this test method. The peak and post-peak shear stresses are plotted against the applied normal stresses.

A shear force is applied to the apparatus such that one section of the box is moved in relation to the other. The test specimens and conditions, including normal stresses, are generally selected by the user.

For more information, contact: The total shear resistance may be a combination of sliding, rolling, and interlocking of material components. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

For Individuals with needing special assistance for disabilities or limited English proficiency Please contact our Title VI specialist at Geosynthetic testing Lab Services: The y-intercept of the straight line is the adhesion.

The determined e5321 may be 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.

Testing under this test method should satm 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 shear force is recorded with respect to displacement. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.


Geosynthetic testing Back asrm Results Print. The geosynthetic and other material is placed within a large-scale direct shear box with an applied normal load on top. The user of results from this test method is cautioned x5321 results at a specified displacement may not be reproducible across laboratories and that the relative shear displacement measured in this test at peak strength may not match relative shear displacement at peak strength in atm field condition.

In cases of dispute, comparative tests to determine whether a statistical bias exists among laboratories may be advisable. 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.

Every effort should be made to identify, as closely as practicable, the sheared area and failure mode of the specimen.
