Abstract: The influences of contents of binders, volumatric percentage of sand, mineral admixtures and air-entrainers on the shrinkage of high performance lightweight aggregate concrete(HPLC) are studied by tests. The experimental results indicate that the shrinkage of high performance lightweight aggregate concrete is increased quickly at early stage and it slows down to the even after 45days or more longer age. Furthermore, the shrinkage of HPLC increases when the content of binder is increased, or water binder ratio and sand percentage are decreased. Fly-ash and blast-furnaced slag can decrease the shrinkage of concrete. The effect of air-entrainer on the shrinkage of HPLC is limited at early stage. However, at the late-stage it grows at different level with increasing of air-entrainer content.
