STUDY OF LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE BEHAVIOUR
The lightweight aggregate can be natural aggregate such as pumice, scoria and all of those of volcanic origin and the artificial aggregate such as expanded blast-furnace slag, vermiculite and clinker aggregate. The main characteristic of this lightweight aggregate is its high porosity which results in …
The basic design for lightweight concrete is covered in Eurocode 2 Part 1-1, with section 11 having particular rules required for lightweight aggregate concretes. Concrete is considered to be lightweight is the density is not more than 2200kg/m 3 (the density of normal weight concrete is assumed to be between 2300kg/m 3 and 2400kg/m 3 ) and a ...
HIGH STRENGTH STRUCTURAL LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE
One way is to incorporate a lightweight aggregate. Natural lightweight aggregates such as pumice [most widely used], scoria, volcanic cinders, tuff and diatomite. Or artificial aggregates or rotary kiln produced lightweight aggregates such as expanded clays, slates, slag, perlite or shale’s. Cenospheres
Advantages and Disadvantages of Lightweight Concrete
Jun 29, 2020 Specific types of lightweight aggregates make varying forms of lightweight concrete. These vary from lightweight aggregate concrete, foamed concrete, or Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC). The aggregates used in AAC are extremely fine, even smaller than a grain of sand. This composition makes AAC highly suitable for pre-casting and reshaping.
What Exactly Is Lightweight Concrete Specify Concrete
Apr 25, 2019 Lightweight concrete is a mixture made with lightweight coarse aggregates such as shale, clay, or slate, which give it its characteristic low density. Structural lightweight concrete has an in-place density of 90 to 115 lb/ft , whereas the density of regular weight concrete ranges from …

Lightweight aggregate such as cracked pumice stone is sometimes used. Blocks are made to a number of coordinating sizes, the actual sizes being about 10mm less to allow for the thickness of the mortar. Block Manufacturing. Blocks can be made by using a simple block-making machine operated by an engine or by hand. They can also be made by using ...
