In order to estimate seismic behavior of LYTAG concrete, the seismic behavior of ordinary concrete have been studied in comparison with LYTAG concrete in this article. At first it discusses the advantages of LYTAG concrete, and then it draws following conclusions through the contrast tests of LYTAG concrete and ordinary concrete and the method of finite element analysis. The seismic performance of Lytag concrete is better than that of ordinary concrete. LYTAG concrete has better social and economic benefits than ordinary concrete from the aspects of seismic fortification.
