Properties of a foamed concrete with soil as filler ...

Feb 01, 2015  Ordinary Portland cement, soil and foaming agent are the raw materials used to make soil-based foamed concrete. The effects of foam content and silica fume on the physical properties of soil-based foamed concrete, such as the dry density, 28-day compressive strength, thermal conductivity, water resistance and pore structure, were studied.
