Lightweight expanded clay aggregate (LECA) or expanded clay (exclay) is a lightweight aggregate made by heating clay to around 1, °C (2, °F) in a rotary yielding gases expand the clay by thousands of small bubbles forming during heating producing a honeycomb structure. LECA has an approximately round or potato shape due to circular movement in the kiln and is available in.

This specification covers lightweight aggregates intended for use in concrete not exposed to the weather, in which the prime consideration is the thermal insulating property of the resulting concrete. Two general types of lightweight aggregate are group I aggregates, which are prepared by expanding products, such as perlite or vermiculite, and. Leca® Lightweight Aggregate (LWA) is used extensively as a lightweight fill for civil engineering and structural applications including highways, bridges, rail, marine, chemical biofilters, water filtration, retaining walls, green roofs, sports centres.

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.

Lightweight aggregate concrete is prepared by using lightweight aggregate or low density aggregate such as volcanic pumice, clay, slate, shale, scoria, tuff and pellite.

Concrete is considered to be lightweight is the density is not more than kg/m3, when compared to normal concrete which is kg/m3 and a proportion of the aggregate, should […]. P.L. Owens, J.B. Newman, in Advanced Concrete Technology, Introduction, definitions and limitations.

Lightweight-concrete is defined by BS EN as having an oven-dry density of not less than kg/m 3 and not more than kg/m 3 by replacing dense natural aggregates either wholly or partially with lightweight aggregates.

Although excluded from this Standard this range of. One way is to incorporate a lightweight aggregate. Natural lightweight aggregates such as pumice [most widely used], scoria, volcanic cinders, tuff and diatomite.

Or artificial aggregates or rotary kiln produced lightweight aggregates such as expanded clays, slates, slag, perlite or shale’s. CenospheresFile Size: 2MB. In this study the combination of foam concrete and lightweight aggregates was investigated in order to develop a lightweight aggregate concrete with open structure and porous matrix (LACPM).

For this purpose the recipe of a foam concrete was combined with the following lightweight aggregates: pumice, expanded glass, foam glass, expanded clay Author: Katrin Schumacher, Nils Saßmannshausen, Christian Pritzel, Reinhard Trettin.

Lightweight aggregate concrete (LWAC) is produced using low density aggregates in the concrete mix. Aggregates having bulk density less than kg/m 3 are comes under lightweight aggregates used in the concrete may include normal aggregates with combination of lightweight coarse aggregates and fine case LWAC pores will not present in the mix.

Lightweight concrete mixture is made with a lightweight coarse aggregate and sometimes a portion or entire fine aggregates may be lightweight instead of normal aggregates.

Structural lightweight concrete has an in-place density (unit weight) on the order of 90 to lb / ft³ ( to kg/m³). normalweight fine aggregate. Concrete, semi-lightweight-Concrete made with a combination of lightweight aggregates (expanded, clay, shale, slag or slate or sintered fly ash) and normalweight aggregates having an equilibrium density of lb/ft³ ( kg/m³) (ACI ).

Introduction: Light weight concrete is a special concrete which weighs lighter than conventional concrete. Density of this concrete is considerably low ( kg/m3 to kg/m3) when compared to normal concrete (kg/m3 to kg/m3).

USED WITH PERMISSION FROM THE NRMCA. Lightweight aggregates suitable for structural concrete may be natural materials such as pumice or scoria, or they may be processed aggregates such as expanded shales, clays, slates, and slags.

More porous than normalweight particles, lightweight aggregates that are not presaturated will absorb the water in the concrete mix.

Manufacturing of lightweight aggregates (6) Manufactured lightweight aggregates are produced by expanding some raw materials in a rotary kiln, on a sintering grate, or by mixing them with water.

The most common lightweight aggregates are pumice, scoria, expanded shale, expanded clay, expanded slate, expanded perlite, expanded slag and.

Fly ash aggregate is often used as part of a lightweight concrete mix. It’s made by sintering fly ash and then crushing the product into suitable sizes. More than tons million tons of fly ash aggregate are made per year and used as lightweight aggregates for concrete.

Expanded Clay Aggregate. In the present study, lightweight expanded clay aggregates were produced from clay, waste brick powders, albite floatation waste, and coal at various temperatures ranged from °C to °C.

Permeable concrete (no fines) Laterlite Expanded Clay binds easily with cement to give a lightweight insulating permeable concrete with better mechanical strength as compared to the loose product. These concrete mixes can be prepared using ordinary batchers or mixers. Typical formulation per m3.

One of the materials with the greatest compressive strength among lightweight aggregates is expanded clay aggregates. This gives it a significant position in the construction industry.

Clay brick powder was used to. clay content of concrete aggregates. 2. To determine the effects of clay content on the strength, shrinkage, and durability of concrete.

3. To relate these effects of clay on the properties of concrete to results of tests for determining clay con­ tent of the aggregates. This research included a .Concrete is considered to be lightweight is the density is not more than kg/m 3 (the density of normal weight concrete is assumed to be between kg/m 3 and kg/m 3) and a proportion of the aggregate should have a density of less than kg/m 3.

Lightweight concrete can be specified using the notation LC for the strength class, e.g.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.
