Lightweight

Definition: concrete of substantially lower density than that made using aggregates of normal density; consists entirely of lightweight aggregate or a combination of lightweight aggregate and normal-density aggregate; its equilibrium densities are generally between 70 and 120 lb/ft3 (1120 and 1920 kg/m3).- ACI Concrete Terminology


Structural low-density (lightweight) concrete is structural concrete made with low-density aggregate having an air-dried density of not more than 115490 lb/ft3 (1850 kg/m3) and a 28 day compressive strength of more than360,000 1b/ ft3 (17.2 MPa) [ACI 213R].
