The volume of tyre rubber wastes is increasing at a fast rate. At present the disposal of waste tyres is becoming a major waste management problem in the world. It is estimated that 1.2 billion of waste tyre rubber produced globally per year. The non-biodegradable nature of the rubber and the consequent disposal problem has led to a serious environmental issue in the recent decades. In India the disposal of waste tyre in landfills is a major issue handled by local municipalities and government sectors. Using this waste material in concrete can solve these problems. The use of recycled tyre rubber as partial aggregate in concrete has great potential to positively affect the properties of concrete in a wide spectrum and result in economy. This experimental study is conducted to analyze the behavior of concrete when fine aggregate is partially replaced with crumbed tyre rubber. Compressive strength was measured in concrete mixes with 5%, 8% and 10% substitution of natural fine aggregate by crumbed rubber along with partial replacement of coarse aggregate by recycled aggregates respectively at their optimum levels as known from previous researches.
