Abstract: Mechanical Concrete is unicellular confined aggregate unit, it binds aggregates into a singular confinement to support lateral soil pressure, also binds aggregates tighter into a load bearing cell. It basically supports the aggregates used in conventional road, confining it into a single cellular structure. The cellular structure of the mechanical concrete confines the stones used as aggregates. The confinement can be tire derived or any hollow cylindrical confinement, the paper mostly emphasizes on the cost effectiveness of the road also enhancing its strength and durability hence recycled tires are used in Mechanical Concrete Road. Mechanical concrete is a thin walled cylinder of uniform circular shape made up of a single material that is plastic or rubber. The paper consists of the test results and analysis using rubber as a binding cylinder. Mechanical concrete can be manufactured from any suitable material having sufficient tensile and proper size to resist the lateral pressure exerted on it when the aggregates are placed under load. Here the preference is given to any recycled auto or truck tire having its side walls removed. Hence the tire used does not bear the properties of the tire but through manufacturing becomes Tire-Derived cylinder.
