In this paper, Miscanthus fibres are used to develop lightweight concrete. The amount of Miscanthus and cement, as well as the water/cement ratio, are varied to analyse the behaviour of the mixture concerning the physical and mechanical properties. The Miscanthus was pre-treated with a silicate sealant or a cement-based fluid. The current paper analyses the impact of the pre-treatment of the Miscanthus fibres on the compressive strength as well as on the long-term deformations. The specimens with a pre-treatment based on a silicate sealant reached a compressive strength of 19.3 MPa, which is higher than the compressive strength of a conventional LC 16/18, a Young's Modulus above 9.9 GPa and a shrinkage deformation of 2244 μm/m. Nevertheless, considering the density the pre-treatment showed not to be beneficial. [less ▲]
