Laboratory Investigation of Lightweight Concrete Properties

The Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, a partnership of the Virginia Department of Transportation and the University of Virginia, has released a report that evaluates the density (unit weight), splitting tensile strength, and elastic modulus of lightweight concrete (LWC) mixtures under different curing conditions to achieve a better understanding of the LWC properties that are essential for long-lasting and cost-effective structures. The report also examines the correlation between the results of the rapid chloride permeability test and the surface resistance test using the Wenner probe to investigate whether the latter could be used to predict the permeability of LWC mixtures.
