In this research, the properties of structural lightweight aggregate concrete (LWAC) made of local lightweight aggregates in East Azarbaijan-Iran were investigated. Considering Iran earthquake zone, the weight of structures is of high importance. Reducing the weight of building using lightweight aggregates is one of the methods to decrease the harmful effects of earthquake on structures. In this study two different types of lightweight aggregates, Scoria and Pumice, provided from Azarbaijan-Iran, were used in concrete mixes. Mechanical properties of LWAC, including compressive strength, tensile strength, modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity and stress-strain relationship were studied. In spite of NWC, the results show that at the same conditions, strength of aggregates is the main factor controlling the compressive strength of LWAC. Twenty-seven different concrete mixes with different 28 days compressive strengths varying from 24 to 51 Mpa were used in this study to measure the compressive strength, tensile strength, modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity and strain at maximum stress which were compared with those of NWC. It was found that for the same compressive strength (24-51 Mpa) the modulus of elasticity of LWAC (10.92-18.77 Gpa) was less than that of NWC (17.53-28.31 Gpa) and tensile strength and modulus of rupture of LWAC was also less than NWC. The corresponding strain of the maximum stress in LWAC was found to be in the range of 2.55-3.78 mm/m, whereas for the same compressive strength, it was at range of 2.28-3.41 mm/m in NWC, this imply to lower modules of elasticity in LWAC compared with NWC.
