    An experimental study of the mechanical properties of Florida-oolite concrete and oolite aggregates is presented. The properties of Florida-oolite concrete determined were strength, modulus of elasticity, creep, and shrinkage. The properties determined for oolite aggregates were strength, modulus of elasticity, unit weight, specific gravity, absorption, and percentage of voids. The modulus of elasticity and the creep coefficient of concrete were found to be significantly less than the values predicted by the standard American Concrete Institute equations. In addition, the effects of prestress and heat curing on the properties of Florida-oolite concrete are discussed.
