Problem statement: In this article, special kind of light weight aggregate named lika had been studied. Approach: The aim of this research was first, to achieve the best mix design of light weight concrete which could be in light weight concrete category and second, by applying the first part gain the main reason of this research which was finding the optimized amount of Micro Silica in a light weight lika concrete. Results: Experimental results had been compared with theoretical viewpoints to reach the properties of the optimized concrete with lika. Conclusion: It is concluded that we can get to a light weight structure concrete applying light aggregate of lika.
