This standard prescribes essential minimum requirements for lightweight aggregates as regards bulk samples, unit mass and grading, absorption, deleterious materials, particle shape, and certificate of compliance. It is intended that the standard be applied to lightweight aggregates suitable for use in structural concrete, although these aggregates may also be used for acoustic absorption or thermal insulation. Appendices outline (1) a method of test for water absorption of lightweight aggregate; (2) a method of test for clay lumps in coarse lightweight aggregate; (3) a method of test for straining; (4) a method of test for pop-out materials.
