1.1 This test method details how cyclic loading is applied to geosynthetics embedded in soil to determine the apparent stiffness of the soil–geosynthetic interface.

1.2 Resilient interface shear stiffness describes the shear stiffness between a geosynthetic and its surrounding soil under conditions of small cyclic loads.

1.3 This test method is intended to provide properties for design. The test method was developed for mechanistic empirical pavement design methods requiring input of the resilient interface shear stiffness. The use of this parameter from this test method for other applications involving cyclic loading should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. It can also be used to compare different geosynthetics, soil types, etc., and thereby be used as a research and development test procedure.

1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.5  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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. This standard may involve hazardous materials, and equipment.
