213R-14 Guide for Structural Lightweight-Aggregate Concrete
: In stock
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. This guide includes a definition of lightweight-aggregate concrete for structural purposes and discusses, in a condensed fashion, the production methods for and inherent properties of structural lightweight aggregates. Current practices for proportioning, mixing, transporting, and placing; properties of hardened concrete; and the design of structural concrete with reference to ACI 318 are all discussed.
Keywords: abrasion resistance; aggregate; bond; contact zone; durability; fire resistance; internal curing; lightweight aggregate; lightweight concrete; mixture proportion; shear; shrinkage; specified density concrete; strength; thermal conductivity
