The objective of this paper is the determination of short-term properties of lightweight concrete with sintered aggregate. The aggregate material comes from the recycling of ashes from power plants, which yield granules after processing. The research was planned based on two concrete mixes. A series of tests was carried out in the ITB Laboratory of Building Structures, Geotechnics and Concrete. As a result of these tests, the following parameters were determined: secant modulus of elasticity and cylinder strength of concrete, cube strength of concrete, axial tensile strength, splitting tensile strength, flexural strength and concrete shrinkage. Knowledge of the tested parameters is necessary when designing prestressed structures, as well as accepting proven values for static calculations when designing complex engineering structures, including prestressed elements made of lightweight concrete.
