Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:Discusses properties of expanded shale and clay aggregates produced in Texas. Considers the use of lightweight structural concrete memebers and their economy as compared to heavy concrete taking into account the cost differential between the two materials. A practical and simple method for the design and control of lightweight structural concrete, both ready- and job-mixed, which has worked well in the field is discussed. Other sections deal with methods of mixing, placing, finishing, and use of admixtures, and the economy of expanded clay or shale structural concrete.
