Mechanical Properties of Lightweight High-Performance Concrete

Project Information

Project ID: 
FHWA-PROJ-06-0036
Project Abstract: 

This projects aims to provide recommended specifications for the mechanical properties of lightweight high-performance concrete. Recommendations will be provided to code-writing committees in order to allow for a systematic update of codes to reflect the performance of modern lightweight concrete.

Goals

The key project objective is to develop recommended specifications for the mechanical properties of lightweight high-performance concrete as relevant to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) Bridge Design Specification.
