Abstract:This experimental investigation was aimed at gathering information on flexural properties, including ductility, of high-strength lightweight concrete members (concrete with a dry unit weight of approximately 120 lb/ft 3 and with compressive strength approaching 9 ksi at 56 days) under reversed cyclic loading. Two sets of six specimens each were manufactured using lightweight aggregate concrete having compressive strengths of 5 ksi at 28 days and 9 ksi at 56 days. The test variables were concrete strength, amount of longitudinal reinforcement, and spacing of ties. The test results, including hysteretic load-deflection curves, for specimens representing columns under zero axial load are reported.
