|Abstract: ||This paper presents a variability study of several engineering properties of tire-derived aggregate based on a comprehensive
literature survey of experimental test programs. The dry compacted unit weight, cohesion intercept, friction angle, constrained modulus,
and modified secondary compression index were evaluated and compared to the engineering parameter variability of natural soils. A series
of regression analyses were performed to investigate the presence and significance of scale-dependency. The results of the variability
analysis indicate that unit weight has the lowest value of coefficient of variation COV whereas the shear strength parameters, constrained
modulus, and compression index have COV values that are substantially higher. Regression analyses indicated that unit weight and
constrained modulus showed the greatest sensitivity to changes in maximum tire particle size. A nonstatistical investigation was used to
further investigate the variability and scale-dependency of the shear strength parameters. Using Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion and
assuming that cohesion is negligible, the analysis showed a scale-independent relationship which is consistent with the statistical findings
for cohesion and friction angle.|
