Since construction industry has always tried to utilize various waste materials in it so that they get re-utilized and the problem of their disposal will not become a great issue. Also from the past few decades, processed or unprocessed industrial wastes are used as raw materials in cement manufacturing, components of concrete binder, aggregates or a portion of aggregate or as ingredients of manufactured aggregates. Finding substitutes and utilizing waste products is in a huge trend in construction industry so that the problem of availability of conventional building materials is reduced. During technological advancements in last few years, attempts are made to utilize by-products of industries by dispose-off them wisely and also to reuse them. Already, many books on concrete technology describes that leakage of oil on cement and concrete surfaces in old grinding units resulted in formation of concrete that possess more resistance to freezing and thawing. This effect is considered as similar by adding an air- air-entraining admixture to the concrete thereby increasing its resistance against freeze-thaw cycles and hence enhancing its durability. However, this theory is not supported by sufficient experimental data hence this present study was conducted to investigate the effects caused by using burned engine oil on fresh and hardened properties of concrete. The performance of concrete in M35 control mix and in 6 other mixes containing burned engine oil and air-entraining admixture is then studied out.
