The results of all these tests were then compared with the ASTM standard values which showed the suitability of these slates for use as structural lightweight concrete aggregate.
In the case of tested structural lightweight concrete applied steel fibres, in amount of up to [V.sub.f] = 0.8% by concrete volume (60 kg/m), reduced swelling as well as final shrinkage (up to 25%) and significantly improved both flexural and splitting tensile strength (up to 61% and 73%, respectively).
Selection of such aggregates has been investigated by a number of researchers for the very long time and stated the approximate compostion of materials for structural lightweight concrete [1, 2].
According to ACI 213 (1999), lightweight concrete can be classified into three, low density concrete (LDC), Moderate strength concrete (MDC), and structural lightweight concrete (SLWC) as shown in Table 1.
