Research on Properties of High Performance Foamed Concrete


Article Preview

The research is devoted to foamed concrete, which is a very perspective material in the modern construction industry. Foamed concrete is lightweight concrete and is in accordance with compressive strength and the use of it: constructive, constructive-insulating and lightweight foamed concrete.
