Abstract This study assesses the load-resistance grade of lightweight concrete insulation panels (ET-panels) made using bottom ash aggregates and air foams and reinforced with wire meshes on the basis of the evaluation of their flexural and shear performances. Six ET-panel specimens were prepared with variations of foam volume ratios () and longitudinal reinforcement ratios () and tested under a top two-point loading system. Test results showed that the wire meshes were promising in distributing flexural and diagonal shear cracks, thereby enhancing the flexural and shear strengths of the ET-panel. The displacement ductility ratio () of the ET-panel was comparable to that observed in conventional normal-weight concrete beams, when does not exceed twice the minimum longitudinal reinforcement ratios () of beams specified in KCI 2017. The flexural and shear strengths of an ET-panel can be conservatively estimated by the procedure of KCI 2017. Overall, all the ET-panel specimens satisfied the requirements for the Class 1 load-resistance recommended in KS F 4736.
