MORAVIA, W. G.; OLIVEIRA, C. A. S.; GUMIERI, A. G.  e  VASCONCELOS, W. L.. Microstructural evaluation of expanded clay to be used as lightweight aggregate in structural concrete. Cerâmica [online]. 2006, vol.52, n.322, pp.193-199. ISSN 0366-6913.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0366-69132006000200012.

The use of expanded clay as aggregate is economically feasible in the manufacturing of concrete due to the decrease in bulk density, provided by these aggregates, minimizing the total weight of the structures. The objective of this work is to characterize the microstructure of expanded clay aggregates which are used in the manufacturing of lightweight concretes. The expanded clay was evaluated concerning of the density, the granulometry and water absorption after total immersion of the aggregate. The chemical analysis, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and mercury intrusion porosimetry were used as well. The expanded clay presented granulometry between the aggregates grades 0 and 1 and high water absorption due to the high porosity of the aggregate. The X-ray diffraction data showed the presence of a-quartz, magnesium silicate and magnesium aluminum oxide.

Palavras-chave : expanded clay; light weight concrete; microstructure.
