What is the use of expanded clay aggregate or eca in civil engineering structures ?

ECA (Expanded Clay Aggregate) has a number of great uses in civil engineering structures ranging from dams to bridges, earthworks, structural foundations, pipelines, tunnels, reservoir construction, and even railway and roadway construction. It can be used in any project that is exposed to extreme forces, from heat and cold to high pressure and static loads.

ECA has a number of useful properties, such as excellent drainage, heat resistance, a low thermal conductivity coefficient, and a very high strength-to-weight ratio. It can be used either alone, for earthworks and similar projects, or as part of an aggregate concrete structure, to reduce the weight of the concrete and provide additional benefits
