Abstract: Due to the fast development in vehicle industry, utilization of tyre is expanding everyday and there is no reuse of the equivalent to diminish the natural contamination. The transfer of waste tyres is confronting serious issues in India. The developing issue of waste tyre transfer in India can be eased if new reusing courses can be found for the surplus tyres. It is evaluated that 1.2 billions of waste tyre rubber delivered all inclusive in a year. It is assessed that 11% of postconsumer tyres are traded and 27% are sent to landfill, accumulated or dumped wrongfully and just 4% is utilized for structural building ventures. Subsequently endeavors have been taken to distinguish the potential utilization of waste tyres in structural building ventures.In this present study, cubes are casted of M25 grade by replacing 5, 10, 15 percent of tyre rubber aggregate with coarse aggregate and compared with regular M25 grade concrete. Properties of fresh concrete like workability, compressive strength,split tensile strength,flexural strength of hardened concrete were identified. The aim is to investigate the optimal use of waste tyre rubber as coarse aggregate in concrete composite.
