CELLULAR CONCRETE


It is a light weight concrete produced by introducing large voids in the concrete or mortar. Its density varies from 3 kN/m3 to 8 kN/m3. It is also known as aerated, foamed concrete.

Properties of cellular concrete
1. It has low weight.

2. It has good fire resistance.

3. Sound absorption is good.

4. Thermal expansion is negligible.

5. Freezing and thawing problems are absent.

6. It has good thermal insulation property.

7. It has less tendency to spall.

Uses of Cellular Concrete
1. It is used for the construction of partition walls.

2. It is used for partitions for heat insulation purposes.
