Experimental Investigation on Properties and Applications of Foamed Concrete Using Polypropylene Fibres and Recycled Aggregate


  • Iniya M. P., Nirmalkumar K., Indhu M. P.


Foamed concrete has an elevated mass proportion and is relatively light in weight. The use of foamed cementitious minimizeswith loading the building base, aids ultimate strength saving, reduces construction labour costs. It also having the ability about being utilisedso both building element that lowers costs of operating as well as shipping such as construction aspects when as especially in comparison against traditional cementitious. The ingredients from foamed concrete, production procedures, and qualities of foamed concrete are discussed in this study. This research is the first to look into foam concretes containing polypropylene fibre and brick bat as a partial replacement for coarse aggregate. The fibres used are polypropylene (PF). Foamed plaster is created with different concentrations for this investigation: 1600 kg as well as 1800 kg/m3 such as 0%, 0.025%, 0.05%, 0.10% and 0.15% (excluding some PF substance)of PF was injected with foamed plaster including various volumes.. This literature analysis also seeks to provide a detailed overview of current foamed concrete uses in the economy of building.
