Abstract

Title: Retaining Wall Shake-Table Test and Design Using Tire Derived Aggregates as Backfill (NEES-2011-1099)

Year Of Curation: 2014

Description: In the United States, 200-300 million tires are scrapped annually. Many of them had been stockpiled in landfills, which caused serious public health problems as well as environmental issues. These days, most developed countries prohibit legal and illegal stockpiling of scrap tires and promote recycling and recovering materials. Tire Derived Aggregate (TDA) is made by cutting waste tires into 5 to 450 mm pieces to be used in civil engineering applications as lightweight aggregates.
