Design Mix of Lightweight Concrete During the preparation of design mix of lightweight concrete it is very difficult to decide water- cement ratio of the concrete, due to variable water absorption by aggregates. It is usually done by trial mixing. Pre- saturation of aggregates is done to avoid excessive absorption of water by aggregates.
