Rubber particles derived from recycled tyres are used as a practical materials in construction industry, including geotechnical systems. Drained triaxial compression tests are conducted to investigate the mechanical behavior of Leighton Buzzard and rubber particles mixtures, bot materials with identical particle size distributions. Distribution of constituents throughout the sample is also explored through x-ray CT testing.
