Products derived from tires have been increasingly used for geotechnical engineering applications because of the economic, environmental, and social benefits they provide. The objective of this paper is to analyze the effect of the addition of rubber fibers from unserviceable tires on the hydromechanical behavior of argillaceous soil from the Barreiras Formation...

The objective of this paper is to analyze the mechanical behavior of a clayey sand soil with added green coir fiber at 0.25%, 0.5%, 0.75%, and 1% by dry weight, through a series of laboratory tests that physically and mechanically characterize the samples in order to evaluate possible changes in the soil properties. Unconfined compression and indirect tensile te...

. One of the most important morphological characteristics of expansive soil is contracting and fissuring during drying and swelling during wetting. Soils that change volume when inundated with water require extra care, whether they are used in agriculture, engineering or both. In this paper, conventional and suction-controlled oedometric tests were used to ev...
