Results obtained from this method may be limited in their applicability to the specific conditions considered in the testing. For more information, contact: The peak and post-peak shear stresses are plotted against the applied normal stresses.

The method of test data interpretation for purposes of acceptance should be mutually atsm to by the users of this test method.

The determined value may be a function of the applied normal stress, material characteristics asttm example, of the geosyntheticsoil properties, size of sample, moisture content, drainage conditions, displacement rate, magnitude of displacement, and other parameters. Geosynthetic testing Lab Services: The shear force is recorded with respect to displacement.

The normal loads used typically at least three normally represent design conditions. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. The y-intercept of the straight line is the adhesion. In the case of acceptance testing requiring the use of 5d321, the user must furnish the soil sample, soil parameters, and direct shear test parameters.


In cases qstm 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.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Shear resistance between a geosynthetic and a soil, or a geosynthetic and another geosynthetic is measured. 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 geosynthetic and other material is placed within a large-scale direct shear box with an applied normal load on top. Every effort should be made to identify, as closely as practicable, the sheared area and failure mode of the specimen.

The test data are presented by a best fit straight line whose slope is the coefficient of friction d5312 the two materials where the shearing occurred.

Active Risk Management

The total shear resistance may be a combination of sliding, rolling, and interlocking of material components. It is the responsibility of the user of asm standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.


A shear force is applied to the apparatus such that one section of the box is moved in relation to the other. Geosynthetic testing Back to Results Print. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

The user of results from this test method is cautioned that 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 a field condition. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
