Conduct of Soil with Fly Ash and Tyre Rubber
India has a total installed capacity of 100,000 MW of electricity generation. To meet the capacity addition target of 78000 MW during 2007-2012, massive resources would be required. Because of this 90% of the Indian thermal power stations are coal based. In 2005, the production of fly ash in India was about 100 million tons per annum and this is likely to touch 155 million tons per annum by 2020 (Singh, 2005). Fly ash is a by-product of the combustion of pulverized coal in thermal power plants. Tyre rubber is a by-product of waste auto tyres. They can be mixed with local soils. The objective of this study is to investigate experimentally the influence of randomly oriented tyre rubber inclusions on the strength behaviour of clayey soil‒fly ash mixture.
