A waste tyre is an inorganic rubber waste that is difficult to decompose since it has a complex structure. Utilization of waste tyre as a material to improve elastic properties in rigid pavement construction in peat environment has not investigated yet. The rigid pavement in peat environment needs to be impermeable and posses high elastic properties. This paper presents mechanical properties and porosity of concrete incorporating crumb rubber as an additive in concrete mixture with a variation of 10%, 20%, and 30% by fine aggregates volume. Rice husk ash is added as a filler in various percentage (5%, 10%, and 15%) by cement volume in the mixture. Concrete is produced with a target strength of 35 MPa. In this research, the OPC concrete mix is used as a control mix. Mechanical properties taken were the compressive strength, tensile strength, flexural strength, modulus of elasticity, and porosity at 7, 14 and 28 days. Results show that crumb rubber and rice husk ash addition increases compressive strength, improves elastic properties, i.e., tensile strength, flexural strength, modulus of elasticity, and reduce the porosity of the concrete. It can be concluded that the crumb rubber is potential as an environmentally friendly additive as rigid pavement material in peat environment.
