Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 213R-03.

This guide summarizes the present state of the technology. It presents and interprets the data on lightweight aggregate concretes from many laboratory studies, accumulated experience resulting from greatly increased and successful use, and performance of structural lightweight aggregate concrete in service. Properties of lightweight aggregates are covered. This is followed by current practices on proportioning, mixing, transporting, placing, and properties of hardened concretes.
