The material replacement in the concrete is the method of enhancing or achieving the same strength. In this research, waste tyre aggregate (shredded) which is hazardous material for the environment has been used as a replacement material of natural coarse aggregate in M20 grade concrete. The objective of this study is to make a comparison of compressive strength between 0% replacement concrete i.e. plain concrete and shredded tyre used concrete with different percentage of replacement. These plain and replaced concrete specimens were tested under the compressive axial load monotonically. Results of research work have shown that 5% replacement of shredded tyre in concrete gives the same strength as we achieve in plain concrete. Waste tyre used concrete is not a cost effective material than other replacing material. This research work also gives the comparison of strength efficiency with respect to additional cost of replaced concrete.
