Pumice as a Lightweight AggregatePumice Products

Pumice Aggregate is seen as a preferred choice to other materials due to its weight, where the pumice is a third lighter than other materials.When the pumice is used in a concrete mix, it increases the elasticity of the product, providing a more flexible compound, this is beneficial for high rise buildings which have to cope with additional natural elements like wind forces.Pumice Aggregate is

Investigation on the Suitability of Pumice and Scoria

This paper presents the use of Ethiopian pumice and scoria aggregates for lightweight concrete in ribbed slab construction. Experimental and theoretical investigations were conducted to study the strength and deformation characteristics of ribbed-slabs with 60 mm topping. The experimental program was dedicated to the study of mix design for the production of all-lightweight structural concrete

Studies on Pumice Lightweight Aggregate Concrete with

The lightweight aggregate is an aggregate that weighs less than the usual rock aggregate and the quarry dust is a rock particle used in the concrete for the experimentation. The significant intention of the proposed technique is to frame a mathematical modeling with the aid of the optimization techniques. The mathematical modeling is done by minimizing the cost and time consumed in the case of
