Abstract: This paper investigates the creep response and long-term strength properties of unconfined and FRP-confined concrete materials incorporating relatively high proportions of recycled tyre rubber particles. The high-strength reference conventional concrete, from which the rubberised concrete is derived, is also examined for comparison purposes. After discussing fundamental characteristics of creep behaviour, this study describes an experimental investigation in which three groups of concrete specimens are subjected to sustained uniaxial compressive stress, in the range of about 20% of the estimated strength, for a period of over a year. The test results indicate that both confined and unconfined rubberised concrete materials tend to develop higher creep coefficients by about 53% and 20%, respectively, in comparison to their reference conventional concrete.
