Definition of Foam Concrete & its uses

Construction Software

Foam concrete is also called as light weight concrete or low density concrete. It stands for special type of concrete that contains low density ranging from 400 kg/m3 to 1000 kg/m3. The density is generally decreased by replacing stable foam with aggregate.

Lots of research works are done in this field to enhance the performance of foam concrete. Consideration should be given to its weak strength and compatibility of the mix. These lead to restricted application of foam concrete in high performance concrete.

This type of concrete can significantly decrease dead load of the complete structure. The application of this type of concrete can be mostly found in LGS construction where structure is developed with light gauge steel and partition walls are made up with light weight concrete that significantly reduces the dead load of the structure and makes it inexpensive and eco-friendly.

Uses Of Foam Concrete:

1. Insulating lightweight concrete production.
2. Heat-insulated light brick, brick, block brick, wall panel production.
3. Heat and sound insulation of leveling concrete.
4. Behind-the-glass fiber reinforced concrete, heat insulation filling of concrete. Cement and plaster-based light plate production.

5. Heat-insulated light and ceramic tile production.
6. Under the soil filling with concrete for heat insulating.
7. Under the soil water drainage purposes porous filling of concrete.
8. Under the bridge to resist icing. Tunnel and shaft filling purposes, lightweight concrete production.E.P.S. polystyrene, produced in the heat insulating lightweight concrete production.
