In this research experiments were undertaken with the goal of evaluating the optimum dosage of Tire Derived Aggregates. The effects on compressive strength, stress-strain, and thermal conductivity were evaluated. The test results showed that the specimen with optimum tire shred content had property of low thermal conductivity without reducing compressive strength extremely. The conclusions of this research support the use of Tire Derived Aggregates as alternative fine aggregates in low strength concrete to be a new type wall insulation materials applications if properly confined.
