This paper represent the study on strength,properties and behavior of crumb rubber.The concrete is one of the most widely used construction material consists of cement,fine aggregate,coarse aggregate.Concrete is like a backbone of the infrastructure to development of a nation.Generally nowadays large quantity of rubber wastes are generated by the industries,vehicles etc...and they are not properly disposed till now.These rubber wastes causes global warming.Hazardous waste materials are being generated and accumulated in huge quantities causing an increasing hazard to the environment. Hazardous materials can be considered non-decaying material accumulating with time. This study deals with alternative solution for utilizing the crumb rubber and its safe disposal by using it as partial replacement with fine aggregate for making concrete.
