    In this work, our choice fell on the exploitation of rubber aggregates from used tires. In this context, an experimental study was conducted to provide more data on the effect of rubber aggregates on the thermophysical properties of self-consolidating concrete (SCC). To this end , four sets of rectangular specimens were prepared by varying the proportion of the rubber aggregates with percentages of 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% of the volume of gravel .Tests on hardened self-consolidating concrete rubber SCCR included measuring the thermal conductivity and the thermal diffusivity by the method of the boxes at steady and determining the specific heat . The results showed that the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity were decreased according to the increase of the percentage of rubber aggregates. This decrease was significantly improved thermal performance of the SCCR... Read More»
