What is Lightweight Concrete? -Types, Uses and Advantages
2010. 3. 15. Normal weight concrete a density in the range of 140 to 150 lb/ft³ (2240 to 2400 kg/m³). For structural applications the concrete strength should be greater than 2500 psi (17.0 MPa). Lightweight aggregates used in structural lightweight concrete are typically expanded shale, clay or slate materials that have been fired in a rotary kiln to develop a porous structure.
Lightweight aggregate concrete. Lightweight aggregate concrete can be produced using a variety of lightweight aggregates. Lightweight aggregates originate from either: Natural materials, like volcanic pumice. The thermal treatment
Concrete using lightweight aggregate should not weigh
PROCESSED CONCRETE 4.01 Types of Processed Concrete 4.02 Aggregates for Light-weight Conc. Lightweight aggregates can be divided into four general classifications : • Pumice,weighing from 25 to 60 lbs.per cu. ft. is well qualified as a lightweight aggregate

Concrete Durability an overview ScienceDirect Topics
In practice, a wear-resistant concrete is probably most reliably achieved by the combined use of a high-strength grade concrete mix and an aggregate exhibiting the appropriate grading and mechanical properties. 193 In certain cases, such as some concrete road pavements, the abrasion and polished stone values (section 16.5.8) of the coarse aggregates might be
