Structural lightweight aggregate concrete solves weight and durability problems in buildings and exposed structures. Lightweight concrete has strengths comparable to normal weight concrete, yet is typically 25% to 35% lighter. Structural lightweight concrete offers design flexibility and substantial cost savings by providing: less dead load, improved seismic structural response, longer spans, better fire ratings, thinner sections, decreased story height, smaller size structural members, less reinforcing steel, and lower foundation costs. Lightweight concrete precast elements offer reduced transportation and placement costs [2].
