Abstract


  • The stockpiling of scrap tyres is a significant environmental hazard and has attracted ample

    research attention to explore viable solutions to recycling and reuse of scrap tyres. The

    authors have recently proposed a novel seismic isolation method using sand-tyre chips

    (STCh) mixture for protecting buildings and infrastructure. Although the static properties of

    STCh mixture have been extensively studied, the investigation on the dynamic properties of

    the mixture has been limited. The dynamic properties of STCh mixture are important to its

    application for seismic protection of infrastructure. This paper presents the dynamic

    properties (shear modulus and damping ratio) of STCh mixture for medium to large range of

    shear strain levels (0.15% to 0.5%). The effects of the level of cyclic shear strain, number of

    cycles and effective initial confining pressure have been investigated. The dynamic properties

    of STCh mixture presented in this paper will also be essential for the application of the

    mixtures in other civil engineering projects.
