Abstract: Mechanical concrete is made by confining aggregates, soils and granular materials inside a thin walled geo cylinder in which we used the waste tires , aggregates and waste concrete. It is a way of binding crushed stone aggregates together into a load bearing cellular building unit which can support compressive loads and resist lateral soil pressure. This tire derived cylinder performs functions similar to the cement or water mixture, the rebar and the formwork in hydraulic cement concrete. Stones confined in this manner can function in load supporting foundations; earth retention structures i.e. walls and dams, slope and channel erosion protection i.e. as ditch and channel liners. It is strength of mechanical cement cylinder that generally defines the overall strength of mechanical concrete and not the crushed stone. The preferred cylinder is made from a recycled auto or truck tire with both sidewalls removed. The tire treated cylinder is no longer a tire but through remanufacturing becomes tire-derived-cylinder, TDS. 78 % of construction waste consists of concrete waste, bricks and tiles. Concrete waste with various fractions was used as coarse aggregate in the research, as well as filler aggregates from the crushed concrete waste were used. Physical-mechanical properties of the samples were analyzed by comparing with reference samples where typical aggregates were used.
