Investigation of Recycled Tire Chips for Use in GDOT Concrete Used to Construct Barrier Walls and Other Applications-Phase I

The objective of this study is to develop an optimized concrete mixture design to produce the most impact resistant energy/absorptive rubber modified concrete mixture for potential use in concrete barrier walls and other applications. In addition, methods to improve adhesion between cementitious materials and the rubber particles will be studied.
