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”.

STUDY OF LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE BEHAVIOUR

2010-6-1  The lightweight aggregate concrete can be divided into two types according to its application. One is partially compacted lightweight aggregate concrete and the other is the structural lightweight aggregate concrete. The partially compacted lightweight aggregate concrete is mainly used for two purposes that is for precast concrete blocks or panels and cast in-situ roofs and walls. The main requirement for this type of concrete
