Summary

The overall objective is to develop a reliable and cost effective design and construction methodology for structural concrete with LWA of natural aggregates (i.e. pumice) as well as artificial aggregates, the latter manufactured from natural materials (i.e. expanded clay) or industrial waste (i.e. flyash). One part objective is to be innovative in the development/improvement of materials, methods and elements/components that can open for new and un-exploited applications. Another part objective is to improve international standards and guidelines.
