Abstract

In this research, an innovative cost-effective disaster mitigation technique is developed, wherein various potentials of tire derived geomaterial, such as tire chips, have been exploited as a tool to reduce the dynamic load and the permanent displacements of structures during earthquakes. The technique renders flexibility and stability to structures, and is named SAFETY (Stability And Flexibility of Structures during Earthquake using TYres). A series of small-scale model shaking table tests and large-scale IG underwater shaking table tests were conducted to confirm the validity of the technique using sinusoidal loading, actual earthquake loadings (Level 1 and Level 2 earthquakes) as well as synthetic earthquake loading (Level 2 earthquake). Test results have indicated that the use of the technique leads not only to reduction of the seismic load, but also curtailment of the seismically induced permanent displacement of structures.
