The object of these recommendations is to define rules for the use of lightweight concrete, by completing or modifying existing rules for concretes made with natural aggregates. The recommendations are applicable only to full lightweight concretes made with clay aggregates or expanded shale and natural sand, where the compressive strength exceeds 20 megapascal. The six-part document deals with: (1) choice of materials; (2) tests and quality control; (3) rules regarding the construction of lightweight concrete structures; (4) design rules; (5) analysis of the scope of use of lightweight concrete; and (6) recommendations for drafting special specifications. /TRRL/
