Experimental study on light weight concrete by partial replacement of cement by flyash, coarse aggregate pumice stone and polystyrene beads: A Review
Keywords:light weight concrete, pumice stone, flyash, polystyrene beads, flexural strength, compressive strength
In today’s world when focus is on reducing self weight of concrete, light weight concrete has came with the high number of applications to reduce self weight of concrete. In developing countries where lot of construction work is to be done light weight concrete will be of major importance and use as it provides flexibility in structure. This paper presents a review on the significant applications and advantages of using lightweight concrete in the field of civil engineering and to find a significant replacement of conventional materials by light weight materials and verify it experimentally. In the present research focus is given on replacing cement by flyash and coarse aggregate by pumice stone and polystyrene beads by proper percentage to be used as structural concrete.
