Lightweight Concrete: Light weight aggregate concrete ...

This concrete is made with completely lightweight aggregate or in combination with lightweight aggregate with normal-weight aggregates. In common practice, normal sand as fine grade and lightweight coarse grade aggregate of less than 19 mm are used to make a concrete called “Sanded lightweight concrete”.

Lightweight concrete

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 proportion of the aggregate should have a density of less than 2000kg/m 3. Lightweight concrete can be specified using the notation LC for the strength class, e.g ...
