The present day world is witnessing construction of very challenging and difficult civil engineering structures. In this study comparison has been made between plain cement concrete and light weight concrete having different proportion of aggregates and admixtures. i.e., Expanded Clay Aggregates: 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% with coarse aggregate, silica fumes 10% and PVA(Poly Vinyl Alcohol) 1.6% of constant replacement with cement and water respectively. It helps to increase the volume of concrete and hence reduce the weight.
