Durability of Lightweight Concrete for Arctic Concrete Structures
The experimental results regarding characteristics of lightweight concrete incorporating condensed silica fume are discussed. Many factors such as type and moisture content of lightweight aggregates, dosage of condensed silica fume, air content, water to cement ratio are selected as experimental factors. It was concluded that high strength and durable lightweight concrete satisfying requirements for arctic concrete structures could be obtained by using lightweight aggregate with low moisture content and utilizing condensed silica fume as a mineral admixture.
