Abstract

The paper presents the results of research in lightweight concrete with open structure made using a lightweight porous foam-glass aggregate produced from recycled glass powder. The goal was to develop lightweight concrete. In order to achieve the best possible properties while reducing binder content, the concrete was reinforced with by-product fibres, which helped reduce the weight of the concrete while delivering satisfactory mechanical properties. In the paper are proposed lightweight concrete with open structure made using foam-glass aggregate. Mechanical, thermal-insulating and acoustic properties were determined on lightweight concrete. Designed concrete is only made of crushed lightweight foam-glass aggregate with a combination of Portland cement with the option of adding recycled PET fibres. The new concretes possess a very good ratio of thermal insulation to mechanical properties as well as good sound absorption.
