Civil engineering and mainly geotechnics and pavement engineering are the possible domains of application for the end of life tyres. They are used in geotechnical applications as backfill or lightweight fill material in substitution or in combination with natural soils. The mechanical behaviour of tyre chip-sand mixtures was studied in a series of CD triaxial tests. The study was focused on random distribution of tyre chips within the mixture. Initial modulus of deformation, angle of internal friction and cohesion were evaluated for each series of test. A composite conserves a good shear resistance at large strains. The mode of failure depends on the tyre content. The internal shear mechanism and the reinforcement mechanism of the composite are discussed as a function of tyre content, chips orientation and stress level.
