Abstract: The fast development of automobile sector, removal of discarded waste elastic is turning into a broad ecological problem. In the current work, exertion has been made to limit this problem By using scrap elastic as the scrap (morsel) concrete rubber in various percentages, as a partial replacement for the fine aggregates. In this paper, the mechanical properties of rubberized concrete with steel fibre (RSFC) are studied experimentally. This article discussed the effect by volume of concrete (5, 7.5 and 10 per cent rubber) and ( and 1.2 per cent steel fibre) on the reinforcement of the properties of rubberized concrete with steel fibres (RSFC) of scrap crumb rubber (SCR) and steel fibre (SF) with different steel substances. The literature survey suggests that there is a substantial decline in strengths of the single morsel rubber used in traditional concrete. like compressive, tensile and flexural strength therefore to overcome this problem by using steel fibers in present investigation and from the results it can be finalized that the all the strengthening properties (compressive, tensile strength and flexural strength) are increased contrasted with rubberized concrete but still test values are inferior than conventional concrete due to fineness of crumb rubber and irregular shape of hook end steel fiber.
