    Abstract

    The primary objective of the research described herein is to assess the pertinent engineering properties for reusing shredded scrap tires as a construction material for light-weight fill material in highway construction, for drainage material in highway and landfill construction, and for other similar applications. Reuse of scrap tires would not only provide a means of disposing of them but would also help solve difficult economical and technical problems. This paper presents the characteristics of shredded scrap tires and their engineering properties and behavior alone or when mixed with soils. The properties considered include compaction, compressibility, strength and deformability, and hydraulic conductivity. Described are new test procedures or modification of existing methods developed to characterize this unusual material.
