STRUCTURAL SEMI-LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE USING

2014-7-7  The properties of structural lightweight concrete produced using crushed hollow block as semi-lightweight coarse aggregate were investigated. The crushed hollow block (CHB) was treated by solution of silica fume and calcium hydroxide of different concentrations (10 and 20%) by weight of mixing water. The performance of semi-lightweight concrete made with treated CHB and containing silica fume as an additional cementitious material at different percents (0, 5, 10, 15 % by weight of cement) was investigated on terms of physical properties. Test results proved that, using treated artificial semi-lightweight aggregate increase the compressive and flexural strengths of concrete, the idea of using cured aggregate by pozzolanic material solution must be taken into consideration. The need of using supplementary cementitious materials such as silica fume must be detected to enhance the performance of semi-lightweight concrete

Lightweight Concrete an overview ScienceDirect

Lightweight concretes can be produced with an over-dry density range of approximately 300 to a maximum of 2000 kg/m 3, with corresponding cube strengths from approximately 1 to over 60 MPa and thermal conductivities of 0.2 to 1.0 W/mK. These values can be compared with those for normal weight concrete of approximately 2100–2500 kg/m 3, 15 to greater than 100. MPa and 1.6–1.9 W/mK.
