Abstract:
This subcommittee report is intended as a supplement ACI Standard Recommended Practice for Selecting Proportions for concrete (ACI 613-54) and describes procedure for proportioning structural grade concrete containing lightweight aggregates. This procedure does not require the use of values for specific gravity or absorption of the aggregates but utilizes a specific gravity factor. Use of this factor is illustrated and examples are included for proportioning both air-entrained and non-air-entrained mixes.
