Throughout the world, the disposal of used tires is a major environmental problem causing environmental hazards such as bleeding ground for mosquitoes, producing uncontrolled fire and they are pollute & contaminating the soil and vegetation. Therefore, there is an urgent need to identify alternative outlets for these tires, with the emphasis on recycling the waste tire. Concrete is an excellent structural material and considered as essential for the modern civilization and human society. Now, the use of waste tires in concrete has become technically feasible and the concrete is being considered as light weight concrete. This study reviews the feasibility of using waste tires in the form of fibers with FR 4.75 in concrete to improve the workability as well as protecting the environment. Also it reviews the potential application in the field by exploiting its unique characteristics and properties. In this study, we outline the use of rubber fibers in SCC in different mix ID’s by using M40 grade and show how it is suitable for the concrete, its uses, benefits and way to future study. Rubber fibers are used in this study as partial replacement of coarse aggregate, in this experiment we cast cubes of 150x150x150mm size, cylinders of 150mm dia & 300 mm length and prisms of 100x100x500mm in size for 7days & 28days testing as partial replacement of coarse aggregate and testing under compression, tensile & flexure. This rubber fiber concrete is not a strength based concept, tried to protect our environment on this earth from pollutants. Rubber fiber Concrete has light weight, fire resistance, resistance from water absorption & ductility.
