Abstract:This project investigated adding ground scrap tire to concrete and it's affect on compressive strength and workability. Experiments were conducted replacing some of the sand in concrete with ground tire. The results showed that as more ground scrap tire was added, compressive strength dropped, however, the concretes remained very workable.
