The main objective of this project is to study and analysis of light weight concrete with conventional concrete. The lightweight concrete is produced by mixing air entraining agent Kemilite-pr in conventional concrete in 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% and 20% cement is replaced by fly ash to make it cost effective. The analysis programme focuses on tests such as Compressive test, Flexural test, Split tensile test, Water absorption test, and Density test, Pull out test & Rebound Hammer test (NDT) only. The results obtained are useful to compare the results with that of conventional concrete. The main forte of this concrete is to low density and thermal conductivity. Ultimately there is reduction of dead load, faster building rate in construction and lessen haulage and handling costs

Keywords: Lightweight concrete, Destructive and Non-destructive test, Compressive test, Water absorption test, Flexural test, Kemilite-PR
