Abstract

This paper provides initial findings regarding the utilization of tire chips in the form of vertical and horizontal layer placed beneath the shallow foundation. The effectiveness of such configuration was investigated numerically using PLAXIS 2D software. The user defined soil model (UDSM)-UBCSAND model of PLAXIS was used as the material model so that the liquefaction behavior able to be captured. Structural displacement, acceleration response and pore water pressure ratio were selected as the indicating factors to measure any improvement made. Furthermore, the effect of various intensity of the seismic motion towards the numerical model also discussed. In general, the presence of horizontal and vertical layer made of tire chips significantly improves the performance of the shallow foundation under the seismic motion in the previously stated indicating factors.
