APPLICATIONS OF PERMEABILITY, OEDOMETER AND DIRECT SHEAR TESTS TO THE SAND MIXED WITH WASTE TIRE CRUMB
Keywords: Sand, tire crumb, permeability, oedometer, direct shear, intergranular void ratio.
Abstract: The amount of the used waste rubbers in the world has been increasing every year, and their utilization, become a major environmental problem worldwide. The present experimental work has been performed to investigate the influence of rubber inclusion on the behavior of a sand. Geotechnical properties of the sand, and sand with tire crumb at various ratios mixtures (0, 2.5, 7.5, and 15%) were investigated through a series of mechanical tests, which are sieving, permeability, direct shear and consolidation. From the results of conducted tests, it is revealed that the addition of tire crumb grains increased both the permeability and the compressional characteristics of the sand. Besides, in this work, intergranular void ratio (es) was employed as an alternative parameter to express the compressive response of sand-tire crumb mixtures. It is seen that intergranular void ratio concept is a good indicator for understanding the behavior of sands with waste tire crumb.
