The use of scrap tires as construction materials in civil engineering applications is one of the most promising ways of recycling this troublesome waste material. Design of scrap tire structures, however, requires data on engineering characteristics of tire-derived materials. Confined compression, direct shear, and tri- axial tests were carried out to evaluate the mechanical characteris- tics of tire chips approximately 2 to 10 mm in size. These test results were synthesized with data from… CONTINUE READING
