Foam Concrete -Materials, Properties, Advantages and ...

The workability of foamed concrete is very high and have a slump value of 150mm to collapse. These have a strong plasticizing effect. This property of foam concrete makes it highly demanded in most of the applications. Once the flow of the mix has remained static for a longer period, it is very difficult to restart its original state.

[PDF] Foamed Concrete: Potential Application in Thermal ...

Foamed concrete is one of the materials in lightweight concrete category which also known as closed cell structure and have lower density between 300 kg/m3 to 1600kg/m3 and thermal conductivity properties between 0.10W/mK to 0.66 W/mK. The compressive strength of foam concrete is just about 1 to 60Mpa compare to normal concrete which achieved 100Mpa in compressive strength. The thermal ...

Frontiers | Development of Quick-Solidifying Foamed Concrete ...

Cement-based inorganic foam concrete, e.g., for engineering filling and coal mine fire extinguishing, has become the first choice for responding to such fires. The objective of this study was to propose quick-solidifying foamed concrete materials based on laboratory tests, and to test the properties of these materials.

Foam Concrete (Lightweight Cellular Concrete), Manufacturing ...

Applications Foamed concrete can be produced with dry densities of 400 to 1600 kg/m³, with 7-day strengths of approximately 1 to 10 N/mm² respectively. Foam concrete is fire resistant, and its thermal and acoustical insulation properties make it ideal for a wide range of purposes, from insulating floors and roofs, to void filling.

Mechanical Characterization of Lightweight Foamed Concrete

Foamed concrete shows excellent physical characteristics such as low self weight, relatively high strength and superb thermal and acoustic insulation properties. It allows for minimal consumption of aggregate, and by replacement of a part of cement by fly ash, it contributes to the waste utilization principles. For many years, the application of foamed concrete has been limited to backfill of retaining walls, insulation of foundations and roof tiles sound insulation. However, during the last few
