Lightweight Concrete—Material Properties for Structural Design

This paper contains a compilation and synthesis of research relating to lightweight concrete and its use in highway bridges as designed using the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications. Specific topics include creep, shrinkage, modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture, flexural and axial force design, shear design, loss of prestress, and development length. For these topics, the existing LRFD provisions are generally adequate for the design of lightweight concrete members with concrete compressive strength up to 10.0 ksi. Refinement of some provisions would improve their consistency and accuracy.
