Lightweight Aggregate Foamed Concrete

Concrete with densities between 800 and 1200kg/m3 can be produced using lightweight aggregate in a foamed cement matrix, They have cube strengths in the range from 4 to 16N/mn2. They offer considerable weight saving and significant thermal insulation, combined with strengths sufficient for many structural purposes. Reinforced elements made of such materials behave in very much the same way as members of normal dense concrete. P.E. Regan and A.R. Arasteh
