Abstract
The self load of a structure is usually higher than the loads it has to carry. It means that these kind of structures are quite often inefficient. The replacement in concrete of the normal aggregate by other lighter materials leads to a significant fall in the concrete weight. The normal aggregate has been replaced by lightweight aggregate since Roman Empire Ages. It has let singular buildings as Agripa's Pantheon or the Coliseum in Rome. Teh evolution according to the age of the compression and tensile strength and the Elastic Modulus in a Lightweight Aggregate Concrete (LAC) has been analysed in this paper. The concrete was produced by LAFARGE. Its commercial name is THERMEDIA. The experimental researches has been compared with predicted values by EC-2.
