father of lightweight aggregate. the original u.s. patent on the rotary kiln process for manufacturing “haydite” expanded shale clay and slate (escs) was awarded to stephen hayde on february 18, 1918. hayde had considerable practical knowledge of construction and construction problems, coupled with an inquiring, inventive and resourceful mind.
in fact, the original us patent on the rotary kiln process for manufacturing haydite expanded shale clay and slate (escs) was awarded to stephen hayde on february 18, 1918. here’s a brief look back at the father of lightweight aggregate and the material he invented. the son of irish immigrants, stephen j hayde, was born in 1861 in keokuk, iowa.
shale is a sedimentary rock: hardened layers of clay, silt and other minerals — essentially very old mud. when crushed and fired in a rotary kiln at 2,000 degrees fahrenheit, tiny air spaces in the shale expand like rice krispies. the result — expanded or vitrified shale — is a lightweight, gray gravel.
specialize in the manufacture of haydite expanded shale lightweight aggregate with the construction of two small rotary kilns. in 1971, a large 13-foot diameter kiln was constructed and two smaller were kilns shut down. manufacturing capacity exceeds 250,000 tons per year. haydite, which is one-half the unit weight of regular stone, is

nordberg (1) in describing a lightweight aggregate plant made the following state ment: 'shale is trucked to the plant, crushed through hammermills, screened into four sizes and fed into separate kilns and calcined at 1900 f. an innovation is the slak ing of the calcined shale for the removal of free lime.' from this statement, it appears

this paper presents statistical models developed to study the influence of key mix design parameters on the properties of lightweight self-consolidating concrete (lwscc) with expanded shale (esh) aggregates. twenty lwscc mixtures are designed and tested, where responses (properties) are evaluated to analyze influence of mix design parameters and develop the models.

using lightweight mortar for various structural and nonstructural applications provides many advantages such as high specific strength (i.e. strength to density ratio) as well as good heat insulation. on the other hand, recent researches showed that
rock, purity, surface texture, gradation and so on. basically three classes of aggregates are identified depending on their weight: light weight, normal weight and heavy weight. lightweight aggregates are aggregates whose maximum dry loose bulk density is about 880kg/m 3 for course aggregates and 1040kg/m 3 for all-in aggregates .
shale. 2.4–2.8. slate. 2.7–2.8. as you can see, rocks of the same type can have a range of densities. this is partly due to different rocks of the same type containing different proportions of minerals. granite, for example, can have a quartz content anywhere between 20% and 60%.
and sustainable structural lightweight aggregate concrete. the densities of both aggregates were also found in the suitable range of structural lightweight aggregates. recent studies (aslam et al. 2015; shafigh et al. 2014a) have showed that the ops and opbc can be used as lightweight aggregate to produce high strength lightweight concrete.
stephen j. hayde: father of the lightweight concrete industry. from the remnants in a brick cull pile, lightweight aggregate was developed. by t.w. bremner and john ries. builders have long recognized the importance of reducing the density of concrete while maintaining its durability and strength. the romans used natural deposits of vesicular
shale is a fine-grained sedimentary rock that forms from the compaction of silt and clay-size mineral particles that we commonly call 'mud.' this composition places shale in a category of sedimentary rocks known as 'mudstones.' shale is distinguished from other mudstones because it is fissile and laminated. 'laminated' means that the rock is
