The aim of this study is to analyze the effect of addition of crumb rubber on the various properties of concrete. The crumb rubber is used as replacement over aggregates in the concrete mix. Crumb rubber is prepared from the scraps of tyres. In this study aggregates are replaced by 5%, 10% 15% crumb rubber. The rubberized concrete is tested for slump and compression strength. It is found that the slump of rubberized concrete increases first but as the amount of rubber is increased the slump starts decreasing. It is observed that initial compression strength of rubberized concrete reduced significantly but the final strength is found to be more than that of ordinary concrete.
