Most structural concrete have f’c values in the 3,000 to 5,000 psi range High-rise buildings sometimes utilize concrete of 12,000 or 15,000 psi Concrete has no linear portion to its stress-strain curve, therefore it is difficult to measure the modulus of elasticity Concrete Material Properties
Structural lightweight concrete is defined as having a 28 day compressive strength in excess of 2,500 psi and a unit weight ranging from 85 or 90 pcf to 115 pcf Generally speaking, concrete in this range of strength and weight is produced with expanded shales, clays, slates, and slags A fairly .
PDF | Two different high performance lightweight concretes (HPLC) with strengths of 55 and 69 MPa were developed They had an air-dry unit weight of 1855 and 1890 kg/m3, respectively Creep .
High performance lightweight concrete typically has a compressive strength from 34 - 69 MPa and an air dry density not exceeding 2000 kg/m3 [ 1, 2 ] Lightweight Aggregate (LWA) used in concrete reduces the weight of different structural members which leads to a decrease in the load transmitted to the foundations, and less work and efforts are .

CIP 36 - Structural Lightweight Concrete WHAT is Structural Lightweight Concrete? WHY Use Structural Lightweight Concrete? HOW is Structural Lightweight Concrete Used? Structural lightweight concrete has an in-place density (unit weight) on the order of 90 to 115 lb/ ft 3 (1440 to 1840 kg/m ) compared to normalweight concrete with a density in the
Concrete frames can be constructed quickly, safely and are cost-effective Durability Concrete has been recorded in existence as long ago as 7,000BC Throughout history, concrete has proven itself to be a most flexible and durable construction material Today, modern technology has led to high performance concrete with super-tensile load .
The key difference between lightweight and heavyweight concrete is the density of the aggregate Lightweight concrete is made using aggregate whose density is less than 2,100 kilograms per cubic yard (or 131 pounds per per cubic foot), while aggregates with greater densities give rise to so-called heavyweight concrete
High Performance Concrete High Performance Concrete (HPC) refers to concrete with a specified compressive strength of 6,000 psi and greater By carrying loads more efficiently than normal-strength concrete, high-strength concrete can reduce the total amount of material placed and lowers the overall cost of the structure
Occasionally the word "problem" is associated with structural lightweight concrete As a general rule, the so-called problems encountered in structural lightweight concrete are not inherent in the aggregate, per se, but rather are created by non-adherence to fundamental knowledge of the properties of both the aggregate and the concrete
The excellent durability performance of structural lightweight concrete made with Expanded Clay Aggregate or expanded shale, clay or slate structural lightweight aggregate is a result of the ceramic nature of the aggregate, and its exceptional bond to and elastic compatibility with the cementitious matrix
