Abstract:

Foamed concrete is either a cement or lime mortar, classified as lightweight concrete, in which air-voids are entrapped in the mortar matrix by means of a suitable foaming agent. It have many advantages when compared with conventional concrete such as advanced strength to weight ratio, lower coefficient of thermal expansion good sound insulation as a result of air voids within aerated concrete. In this study sodium lauryl sulphate is used as the foaming agent. This study aims to determine optimum dosage of sodium lauryl sulphate required. Also, in order to increase the strength of foamed concrete, studies are to be conducted on specimens with fly-ash as partial replacement of cement. The work also includes the evaluation of mechanical properties of foamed concrete and influence of admixtures in foamed concrete.
