Research on Expanded Polystyrene Light-aggregate Concrete
EPS(Expanded polystyrene)is used as light-weight.By adding fly ash and modified polymers in proper proportion aggregate, and cement is used as adhesive material, the uniformity and stability of pastes can be improved. The EPS light-weight concrete is obtained with good physical mechanical perform ance and some problems of segregated layers, weak interfacial bonding, and low density and strength etc, can be solved. The effects of water cement ratio and fly ash proportion on the mobitity of the mixture and the strength of the concrete are analyzed.
