Abstract

Use of rubber particles derived from shredding of recycled tyres could be a viable alternative for some conventional materials used in construction industries, including geotechnical systems. Mechanical behaviour of a sand-rubber mixture having both sand and rubber particles with identical particle size distributions is studied and samples with different rubber fractions are tested in drained conditions in triaxial compression under various confining pressures. The quality of the mixture, homogeneous distribution of constituents and particle segregation is explored through an experimental procedure and image analysis technique.
