In this project, an overview of the effects of environmental conditions on the mechanical properties of rubberized concrete is experimentally explored. These conditions include freeze and thaw cycles, temperature and salt attack. Moreover, the effect of adding stainless-steel fibers to the rubberized concrete is investigated to utilize both the advantages of rubber and stainless-steel fibers in concrete. Concrete specimens are prepared with different percentages of rubber and steel fibers, cured and stored under different environmental conditions.
