The benefits of using waste materials as a partial replacement for cement in high performance concrete are also discussed. This paper presents the combined effects of bottom ash TPP “Vung Ang” and expanded polystyrene aggregate on different the properties of light-weight concrete. Twenty different concrete mixtures with a water to cement ratio of 0.4 and superplasticizer to cement ratio of 0.015 were used. On the one hand, the EPS was partially replaced with (0 ÷ 40)% by volume of concrete mixture. On the other hand, the fine aggregate was replaced with (0 ÷ 30)% by mass of BA TPP “Vung Ang”. The engineering properties, including workability, density and compressive strength of light-weight concrete were investigated at different curing times. The level of decrease in the strength depends upon the replacement level of EPS and BA. Specifically, the concrete containing 40% EPS and 30% BA at 28 days of age decrease in average density and strength were 43.2% and 26.4%, respectively, in comparison with the control concrete.
