Foamed concrete, Light weight, Flowability, Design proportions, Structural properties

Abstract:

Foamed concrete is defined as a light cellular concrete which can be classified as a lightweight concrete (density of 400–1850 kg/m3) with random air-voids created from the mixture of foam agents in mortar. Foamed concrete is recognized for its high flow ability, low cement content, low aggregate usage, and excellent thermal insulation. Furthermore, the foamed concrete is considered as an economical solution in fabrication of large scale lightweight construction materials but due to its low compressive strength it cannot be used as structural members. The paper provides a review to develop structural foamed concretes by using cement, sand and steel fibers. This review paper mainly tends to evaluate the structural properties of foamed concrete and then it is expanded to elaborate the improvements in foamed concrete design proportions and selection of constituent materials in order to enrich its performance at fresh and hardened states.
