PROPERTIES OF HIGH-STRENGTH CONCRETE CONTAINING LIGHT-, NORMAL-, AND HEAVYWEIGHT AGGREGATE

The results are presented of a study of the influence of density of aggregate on mechanical properties of high-strength concrete. The materials used and the experimental details are described, and the results are discussed. Lightweight concretes and heavyweight concretes were studied. A comparison of the experimentally determined values of the elastic modulus with the calculated values according to the relationships recommended by the ACI Building Code, the British Standard Code, and the Norwegian Standard Code, showed that all codes overestimated the elastic modulus of high-strength heavyweight concrete. In general, the magnitude of drying shrinkage was inversely proportional to the period for which specimens were water cured. These and other study findings are discussed.
