 Due to the rapid growth in automobile industry, use of tyre is increasing day to day and there is no reuse of the same to decrease the environmental pollution. The disposal of waste tyres has facing major problems in India. The growing problem of waste tyre disposal in India can be alleviated if new recycling routes can be found for the surplus tyres. It is estimated that 1.2 billions of waste tyre rubber produced globally in a year. It is estimated that 11% of postconsumer tyres are exported and 27% are sent to landfill, stockpiled or dumped illegally and only 4% is used for civil engineering projects. Hence efforts have been taken to identify the potential application of waste tyres in civil engineering projects. In this present study total of 12 prisms are casted of M25 grade by replacing 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 percent of tyre aggregate with coarse aggregate and compared with regular M25 grade concrete. Properties of fresh concrete and flexural strength of hardened concrete were identified.
