Paper Title
IMPROVEMENT OF COHESIVE SOIL SUBGRADE BY USING TIRE SCRAP
Abstract
The disposal of tire scrap has become a nightmare in contemporary times. With the global increase in number of vehicles the production of tires has also increased manifold which in turn has resulted in accumulation of tones of tire scrap being generated each year. Traditionally, tire scrap is either burnt or being dumped off having severe environmental consequences. The cohesive soils are not preferred by highway engineers due to its low shearing strength and poor water draining capabilities thereby making it an undesirable choice for construction of a highway project. In this study an A-6 soil was taken and various proportions (05%,10%,15%) of tire chips (0.5”,1”,1.5”) were added to form samples which were then tested against Modified Proctor, Falling Head Permeability and Large-scale Direct Shear Tests. It was concluded that addition of tire chips to cohesive soil mass had far reaching impact on the strength and hydraulic conductivity parameters of the mixtures and hence the waste could be utilized in an environmental friendly manner.
