Paper Title:
Compression Properties of Granulated Rubber-Loess Mixtures as a Fill Materials
  Abstract

One-dimensional confined compression tests have been used to investigate the compressibility of granulated rubber-loess mixtures with rubber content of 0,10,20,30,40,50,100%. The purpose is to find the compression probability of their usage as a lightweight fill material. The results indicate that the compression properties of mixtures are between pure compact loess and pure granulated rubber. The coefficient compressibility, elastic strain, and recover strain increase with increasing rubber content. Granulated rubber-loess mixtures showing behavior of modular variation with changing granulated rubber content, can be used as lightweight materials in civil engineering applications to sharply reduce the tire disposal problem and solve problems concerned with stress and deformation.
