Abstract
Present paper emphasizes on the strength characteristics of concrete using waste engine oil as admixture. Experimentation has been carried out for evaluating the strength properties of concrete using waste engine oil as admixture into the concrete composition. Based on the literature, the main function for usage of waste engine oil is to extend the initial setting time and workability of concrete. Usually these type of admixtures used in the exceptional cases like off shore structures, there it requires more time for placing of concrete because of deep foundation aspects. Five different percentages of admixtures (waste engine oil) are chosen in the experimentation at 0, 0.1, 0.3, 0.5 and 1.0% by weight of cement. Finally it was concluded that workability was enhanced. Compressive strength and tensile strength of concrete was decreased with increase of waste engine oil into the composition. In order to improve the workability of concrete composition, waste engine oil is a good admixture in composition
