Strength Characteristics of Preformed Foam Concrete

2019 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
The study deals with the usage of perforated foam of various percentages to that of coarse aggregate to produce light weight concrete. With the day to day increase in industries and civilization's expansion it has become very much necessary to produce structures with proficiently lesser weight. Its usage has become more proficient in construction of building in earthquake prone areas. This experimental investigation deals with the study of strength parameters of light weight concrete by

All these strength parameter test are performed on 7th day, 14th day and 28th day respectively from day of casting
