Experimental Study of Concrete Using Crumb Rubber with Partial Replacement of Fine Aggregates

Diwas Kalauni, Sitender Chhilar, Tinku Biswas

Abstract


The cost effective About one crore 10 lakhs all types of new vehicles are added all year to the Indian roads. The increase of about three crores discarded tyres each year stance a potential threat to the environment. The greatest way to overcome this problem is to catch alternative aggregates for construction. The proposed work presents an investigational study of result of use of solid waste material (crumb rubber) in concrete by volume variation of crumb rubber. Crumb rubber characteristically includes particles ranging in size from 4.75 mm (No.4 sieve) to fewer than 0.075 mm (No. 200 sieve). Most processes that incorporate crumb rubber as an asphalt modifier use particles ranging in size from 0.6 to 0.15 mm (No. 30 to No. 100 sieve).
