  • Improvements on a system for soil erosion control of slopes using scrap tyres

    This work proposes improvements on the assembly process of a slope protection system using scrap tyres to reduce severe erosion that occurs in non-vegetated slopes. Tests results during six rain events, with maximal intensity of 26 mm/hr and accumulated rainfall of 94.5 mm, indicate that the installation cost of the system was $1.10USD/tyre and reduced the erosion by 83% with respect to an ...
