Thoses files are the originals Microsoft Word files converted in PDF format with the free software

For any question about Pneusol/Tyresoil, contact Long Nguyen Thanh
The Pneusol (Tyresoil) is formed by the association of two
elements, used tyre and soil. The word ``tyres'' means here all parts
of old tyres (two sidewalls and a tread) or entired tyres used
together in chains or in tiers and capable of withstanding large
tensile forces. The word ``soil'' covers both the whole range of
natural grounds, and a variety of wastes. By the end of 2004, more
than 1000 structures have been built in the world (France,
Algeria,United States of America, Switzerland, Germany, Roumania,
Jordan, Brazil, Rwanda,...) covering a wide range of civil engineering
applications (retaining walls, lightweight fill, energy absorber,
stress repartitor, slope or river protection...). This thesis presents
all the possibilities of this material, its technology, its behaviour,
its methods and recommendations for its installation.
