Properties of Lightweight Concretes Made of Aggregate from Recycled Glass
The paper describes the basic properties of newly developed lightweight cement concrete containing lightweight aggregate based on recycled glass. The basic properties of concrete were observed, i.e. bulk density in fresh and hardened state and compressive strength. Given the low bulk density of the concretes being designed, thermal conductivity is also observed in order to assess the options off improving thermal insulation properties in a structure where such concrete may be used. Thermal insulation properties are the primary parameter in the implementation of floor or ceiling structure composition.
