Since last few years cement replacement materials with industrial by-products and
agricultural wastes in concrete production are widely used. It imparts positive
environmental effect because the waste materials are not released to the environment. It
was reported that the leakage of motor oil onto concrete surfaces in old grinding units
increased the resistance such concrete to freezing and thawing, it made to understand that
the effect is similar to adding an air-entraining chemical admixture to the concrete. This
paper presents results of the experimental study conducted to investigate the effects of
used engine oil on properties of fresh and hardened concrete. With the addition of used
engine oil, concrete slump was increased by 18% to 38% and air content by 26% to 58%
as compare to the slump of control concrete. Porosity and oxygen permeability of
concrete containing used engine oil was also reduced and the compressive strength
obtained was approximately same as that of the control mix.
