Abstract

Cellular Light Weight Concrete is a versatile material which is made up of cement, fly ash and protein based foam. Basically it is a new material which is currently using in India for walling purpose. Cellular Light Weight Concrete gives better sound insulation, thermal insulation, durable, lightweight, uniform size & shape, reduce permeability. It is non-load bearing structural element which has lower strength than conventional concrete. Cellular concrete is popular because of its light weight which reduces self-weight of structure. In this paper light weight cellular concrete blocks are casted with 65% of Fly ash and 35% of cement with foam content 1.5% of total weight and to increase its strength sand and quarry dust is added in its composition which replace fly ash upto 30% at an interval of 5%. to check properties of these cellular lightweight concrete (CLC) blocks test like compressive strength, density and water absorption is done in the laboratory.
