Replacing Natural Aggregates in Conventional Concrete with Rubber Waste
Keywords:Rubberized Modified Concrete, Fine Crumb Rubber, Coarse Crumb Rubber, Conventional Concrete Mix, Green Concrete
This paper, through experimental study and literary sources investigates the utilization of rubber waste in developing Green Concrete (GC). The natural aggregate (sand) of Conventional Concrete (CC) is replaced as 10%, 20% and 30% with coarse and fine rubber aggregate. The samples were tested in laboratory after a specific time on various aspects including compression strength and results were compared with each other and also with Conventional Concrete Mix (CCM). The paper concludes that structural and non structural rubberized concrete can be developed by using specific quantity of rubber waste in placement of fine and coarse aggregates in conventional concrete. The key objective of this research is to find out an efficient solution for utilizing rubber waste for better environment and also to provide initiative for concerned government organization for framing effective legislation for the use of rubberized concrete in building and construction industries.
