Soil properties play very important role in construction. some time the properties of soil are not favourable for construction and we used some method to improve properties of soil called soil stabilization. In this paper we used shredded rubber tyre to improve properties of soil. Shredded rubber tyres with different sizes (10mm ,20mm,30mm) in width and (20mm,40mm,60mm) in length are used for experimental work. the percentage used is (1%,2%,11%) for the experimental work. Use of shredded rubber tyres in geotechnical engineering for enhancing the soil properties, has received great attention in the recent times. This paper presents the effect on the behavior of pavement subgrade when pavement subgrade soil is stabilized with shredded rubber tyre. It is found from the investigation that the optimum value of shredded rubber tyre is 1%.and size is 10mm×20mm.it improve the value of UCS by 7.83% than in comparison of virgin soil.
