Investigation of properties of low-strength lightweight ...

01/02/2007  Light-weight aggregate concrete (LWAC) has lower density and higher insulating capacity than NWC (about 6 times). Insulating building blocks are made with low strength aggregates such as pumice. These aggregates have an average compressive strength of 3.5 MPa, but this value can be increased up to 7.0 MPa.

Lightweight Concrete - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Lightweight concretes can be produced with an over-dry density range of approximately 300 to a maximum of 2000 kg/m 3, with corresponding cube strengths from approximately 1 to over 60 MPa and thermal conductivities of 0.2 to 1.0 W/mK. These values can be compared with those for normal weight concrete of approximately 2100–2500 kg/m 3, 15 to greater than 100. MPa and 1.6–1.9 W/mK.

Thermal mass of concrete

Ideally modern buildings should be constructed in such a manner as to minimise temperature build up in the room space during warm weather and yet prevent the loss of this excess heat in cold periods. To achieve this, a combination of insulation to exterior walls is required for colder weather and a high thermal mass to act as a heat sink for hot weather. Concrete has a high thermal mass with ...

Thermal performance of different materials BUILD

Some building materials are specially chosen for the fact that they already incorporate insulation into their design. These include structural insulation panels (SIPs), straw bales and autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) blocks. The primary advantage in using these types of materials is that there is no need for separate insulation to be installed, which saves you the cost and hassle of doing this.
