Research on Mechanical Properties of Crumb Rubber Concrete
Considering large number production of the abandoned tyres and the question of the concrete with mixture of crumb rubber，the mainly task of this paper is to study the mechanical properties of different mixing ratio concrete with vary volume of crumb rubber. The results showed that the workability, apparent density, compressive strength, flexural strength and brittleness index decrease as the increase of crumb rubber. While the anti-crack performance and anti-fatigue performance can be improved. The wear-resistance properties are a little lower than common concrete.
