Abstract: This paper describes the results of short columns with different eccentricities. The response of columns was examined to probe the influence of rubber aggregate as a partial substitution of coarse aggregate in concrete.. The experimental outcomes were contrasted with the finite element model to evaluate the failure pattern of the test units. Columns with 5% rubber aggregate replacement ratio showed a similar load behaviour compared to conventional aggregate concrete. The ultimate load of columns made with 5% recycled rubber aggregate concrete could be complemented and used because of the similar response as that of columns made with conventional concrete .
