Abstracts

Concrete tanks were used for storing different oil products. Structural design of such tanks should be based on concrete compressive value smaller than the basic strength because soaking with oil product lead to strength deterioration. In this investigation regression analysis was carried out on the data of oil soaked concrete and models proposed for calculating the compressive strength of oil soaked concrete. Accuracy of each model was investigated. The models were found to be accurate based on statistical tests and accordingly can be used for the design of oil storage concrete tanks.
