Dynamic Shear Modulus and Damping Ratio of Waste Granular Rubber and Cement Soil Mixtures


Article Preview

In this study a resonant column apparatus was used to obtain the shear modulus and damping ratio of the waste granular rubber and cement soil mixtures. Specimens were tested for different rubber contents and confining pressures. Experiments show that with the rubber increased, the damping ratio of the rubber and cement soil mixtures increases, dynamic modulus decreases. When the confining pressure increases, the shear modulus of rubber and cement soil mixtures increase gradualy, damping ratio increase slightly.
