This Project deals with the development of Floating type of concrete by using lightweight aggregate (Pumice stone). In Design of concrete structures, light weight concrete plays a prominent role in reducing the density and to increase the thermal insulation. These may relate of both structural integrity & serviceability. The new sources of Structural aggregate which is produced from environmental waste is Natural aggregates and synthetic light weight aggregate. The use of structural grade light weight concrete reduces the self-weight and helps to construct larger precast units. In this study, an attempt has been made to study the Mechanical Properties of a structural grade light weight concrete M20 using the light weight aggregate pumice stone as a partial replacement to coarse aggregate and mineral admixture materials like Silica Fume. For this purpose, along with a Control Mix, 6 sets were prepared to study the compressive strength. Each set comprises of 3 cubes. Slump test were carried out for each mix in the fresh state. 7-days Compressive test were performed in the hardened state. The test results showed an overall strength & difference in weight for various ratios of mix and the best compressive strength is used for the floating structure.
