The term concrete mix design may be defined as the process of selecting suitable ingredients for construction of concrete and to determine their relative amounts with an objective to produce a concrete mix having the required, strength, workability, and durability in as economical manner as possible. The plastic and the hardened states are the two states governing the proportioning of ingredient of the concrete mix. If the concrete (in plastic state) is not workable it becomes difficult to be properly placed and compacted. Therefore, the property of workability becomes of vital importance. The present work is based on the effect of addition of rubber crumbs on Portland cement concrete. The present study is based on studying the effects of replacement of 5% and 10% of coarse aggregates by rubber crumbs on Portland cement concrete.
