The guide summarizes the present state of technology, presents and interprets the data on lightweight-aggregate concrete from many laboratory studies and the accumulated experience resulting from its successful use, and reviews performance of structural lightweight aggregate concrete in service.   The Lightweight Aggregate Concrete Market report has been tailored in such a way that it gives total data related with market perspectives which directly or indirectly influence the industry structure. The report also opens up on a detailed investigation of various market factor such as size, growth path, trends, revenue, challenges and opportunity during the [ ].

      1. LIGHT WEIGHT CONCRETE 2. Definition: Concrete having a day compressive strength greater than 17 Mpa and an airdried unit weight not greater than kg/m³. Composition: Similar to normal concrete except that it is made with lightweight aggregates or combination of lightweight and normal-weight aggregates.   - Buy Lightweight Aggregate Concrete (Construction Materials Science and Technology Series) book online at best prices in India on Read Lightweight Aggregate Concrete (Construction Materials Science and Technology Series) book reviews & author details and more at Free delivery on qualified : Satish Chandra, Leif Berntsson.

    Structural Lightweight Aggregate Concrete by Clarke, J.L. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at - Structural Lightweight Aggregate Concrete - AbeBooks. Lightweight aggregate concrete may be very different from normal weight concrete from this point of view. The properties mainly depend on the properties of the lightweight aggregate like particle density, water absorption capacity. The aim is to study the impact of the time under water storage on compressive strength and fracture tests results.

Publisher Summary. The production of lightweight aggregate concrete has been expanding to include all types ranging from no-fines concrete of low density, mainly for block production, to structural concrete with densities from to kg/m 3 and compressive strengths up to 80 MPa.

This chapter explains several techniques employed for the production of lightweight aggregate concrete. In spite of the increasing use and demand for lightweight aggregate concrete (LWAC), there is still a lack of adequate explanations to understand the mechanisms responsible for the strength and durability properties of LWAC.

This book is written to give an overall picture of LWAC, from the historical background, aggregate production Cited by: Purchase Lightweight Aggregate Concrete - 1st Edition.
