Lightweight concrete was produced with a compressive strength greater than 11,000 psi (76 MPa). The elastic modulus of high strength lightweight concrete was found to be less than the elastic modulus of normal weight concrete of comparable strength, but the equation recommended in ACI 318, based on unit weight and compressive strength, provided a good estimate of the elastic modulus of the high strength lightweight concrete in this study [7].
