Abstract: Urbanisation and the day to day exponential increase in the number of automobileshas increased the usage of rubber. Due to this, the amount of scrap rubber is also increasingwhich is generally left for scrap deposition in landfills. According to a recent survey, it is estimated that the rubber scrap will reach nearly 1.2 billion tonnes annually by end of 2030. Scrap tyres are also harm to environment as they are non–biodegradable and a good catchment area for breading of mosquitoes androdents. Large amounts of cross-ply rubber are also being deposited along the path of aircraft runways which is a huge threat in terms of skid resistance factor of aircrafts.Further, there is a limitation in recycling of these in the use of crumb rubber as well as polymer fibre material. As anattempt to reusethis waste, many experimental studies are carried out using it as a filler material in concrete industry. This paper presents a review of the work carried out by the past and recent researchers who studied the fresh and hardened properties of concrete with crumb rubber as anauxiliary material.
