    The precast lightweight aggregate concrete (LAC) elements are used extensively in Denmark, where the use of precast elements domonates the building structures. Similar elements are used in other parts of Nothern Europe, which have lead to development of an European standard for precast LAC elements of LAC with open structure (prEN1520).The test results have shown that the formulas in prEN1520's revision are fairly correct and lead to slightly conservative estimates of the modulus of elasticity and flexural strength.
