Comparative Study on Strength Aspects of Light Weight Concrete by Replacing Coarse Aggregate with Shredded Tyre Waste
The need for automobiles is increasing each day and the usage of these vehicles also increased the waste production. Rubber tyre is the one of the main wastes generated when it comes to automobiles. Since rubber is an elastomeric material, it is hard to recycle. So, the accumulating tyre waste is a matter of concern and it leads to various ecological properties. Incorporating a percentage of shredded tyre in concrete to coarse aggregates can reduce the waste accumulation. Since shredded tyre is a light weight material its addition in concrete can reduce the weight of concrete. This study compares the strength characteristics of normal concrete with lighter-weight concrete in which tyre trash is used in place of the coarse aggregate.
