Abstract

Experimental Study on Mechanical Properties of Rub-Fibre Reinforced Concrete

Author(s): J. Karthik Ghutham, M. Bhuvanaeshwari and Jessy Rooby

In recent times the Automotive Transportation is massively increased and rubber tyres is one of the most wear and tear material in it. These rubber tyres after its life time are dumped in landfills which take a very long time to decompose and become an environment effecting substance. Concrete is weak in tension which can be met with use of rub-fibres in concrete. The specimens are casted of M25 grade, rubfibres are used as additives in 0.25% and 0.5% to the weight of concrete. Hence the utilization of cycle tyre rubber fibres in concrete elevates the mechanical and ductile properties through a sustainable way.
