Topic : Study on Cellular Lightweight Concrete and its Strength & Characteristics

Authors:Abhijeet Chiwande || Chetan S. Dhanjode

Abstract:Cellular Light weight Concrete (CLWC) is not a new invention in concrete world. It has been known since ancient times. It was made using natural aggregates of volcanic origin such as pumice, scoria, etc. The Greeks and the Romans used pumice in building construction.Lightweight concrete can be defined as a type of concrete which includes an expanding agent in that it increases the volume of the mixture while giving additional qualities such as availability and lessened the dead weight. Lightweight concrete maintains its large voids and not forming laitance layers or cement films when placed on the wall. However, sufficient water cement ratio is vital to produce adequate cohesion between cement and water. Insufficient water can cause lack of cohesion between particles, thus loss in strength of concrete. Likewise too much water can cause cement to run off aggregate to form laitance layers, subsequently weakens in strength.This mini project is prepared to show the activities and progress of the lightweight concrete. The performance of lightweight concrete such as compressive strength tests, water absorption and density and supplementary tests and comparisons made with other types of lightweight concrete were carried out..
