Strategies for 1D compression testing of large particle sized Tire Derived Aggregate (TDA)

  Laboratory testing of a mass of large particle sized Tire Derived Aggregate (TDA) to assess performance related properties such as void ratio, compressive creep and hydraulic conductivity under large loads poses a number of experimental challenges. Large particle sized TDA is shredded scrap tires with particle sizes from 50 mm to over 305 mm. The large particle size of the TDA mass results in experimental challenges such as the need for a large test chamber and the need for a load application system with a capacity to apply and sustain large loads while accommodating large vertical displacements from the compression of the TDA sample mass.
