The main aim of this research is to study the effect of adding % by weight of ash rubber tire ( 2.5 , 4 , 5 , 10 , 15 )% as a replacement materials from the weight of cement to concrete . The tests which were used in this study were : 1. Slump test . 2. Compressive strength . 3. Density . It was found that in cooperating of ash rubber tire in concrete affected on compressive strength relative to reference mix at 28 day were (75% , 1.02 , 1.38 )for concrete with ( 2.5 , 4 , 5 ) % from ash rubber tire by weight of cement respectively. Also, there is decrease in dry density relative to reference mix at 28 day were ( 0.96 , 0.95 )for concrete with ( 4, 5 )% from ash rubber tire by weight of cement respectively. So increscent in slump test with the increscent of add mixture about ( 10.15 ) %from the reference value which is considered as a failure mix incoherent and absorbed a lot of water.
