Abstract

This paper presents result of a study on the effectiveness of palm oil clinker (POC) as an alternative to gravel in self–compacting lightweight concrete. Specimens were prepared by using ordinary Portland cement, Kahang sand, palm oil clinker, timber industry ash (TIA), tap water and superplasticizer named Rheobuild 1100. The quality of the mix, especially the strength is monitor for age 7-days, 28-days and 90-days. The results shows that by utilizing palm oil clinker as the lightweight aggregate and the superplasticizer as the admixture, a low water cement ratio in the range of 0.39 – 0.42 self-compacting lightweight concrete with high workability and the strength that meets the minimum requirements can be produced.
