Abstract: Improvements in materials used for construction have an important impact on the Construction industry. Therefore many efforts have been made in the construction industry to put to use waste material products, e.g., worn-out tyres, into useful and Economical items. If this is achieved successfully it will contribute to the reduced quantity of waste material dumping problems by effective use of these waste materials in the building sector. The present research will concentrate on how to effectively put to use the rubber waste tyres in construction industry so as to reduce their impact on our precious environment and also using them effectively in the construction process. It will involve comprehensive laboratory tests on fresh and hardened rubberized concrete in order to study its strength behavior i.e. compressive and flexure strength, and its impact resistance with different volume of rubber in crumb state (fine aggregate). Volume variation of crumb rubber. The proposed research work will study the effect of volume variation of crumb rubber on the compressive strength, flexural strength, split tensile strength & workability in terms of Slump in mm of the concrete.
