In this paper, the mechanical properties of concrete with an added residue of the petrochemical industry (at levels of 10, 20, 30%), called catalytic cracking catalyst residue (FCC), are evaluated. The mechanical properties evaluated include compressive strength, modulus of elasticity, flexural strength, and ultrasonic pulse velocity. Two reference materials, portland cement concrete without addition and added with 20% of metakaolin (MK), were used. These tests were performed up to 360 days of curing age. Based on the results obtained, correlations were established between the different properties evaluated. The best mechanical performance was obtained with 10% FCC as a cement replacement.
