Abstract:

Over the last years, the usage of new, environmentally friendly materials in concrete pavement is viewed and presented as a special field of researchers' study. Tire Crumb rubber (TCR) is a commodity made by re-processing (shredding) disposed of automobile tires. Shredded rubber tires have been used as a partial replacement by fine or coarse aggregates in Concrete and gained popularity. This paper presents an experimental study on the evaluation of using new materials on the rigid concrete pavement. A total of thirty-seven mix design was used to produce the mixture. Different parameters were considered during this study; the dosages of addition silica fume of the total cementitious materials weight, high Range Water Reducing Agent (HRWRA) ratio, replacement ratio of fine aggregates by rubber powder, and the ratio of (W/C). The experimental results indicated that the workability of fresh Concrete and flexural strength is remarkably enhanced by using rubber as a fine aggregate partial replacement and increasing the water-cement ratio. But replacement crumb rubber content up to 25% resulted in decreasing compressive strength up to 20%. The increasing percentage of silica fume content and HRWRA ratio increased compressive strength and flexural strength results, decreasing the rubberized Concrete's slump.
