GUIDE FOR CELLULAR CONCRETES ABOVE 50 PCF, AND FOR AGGREGATE CONCRETES ABOVE 50 PCF WITH COMPRESSIVE STRENGTHS LESS THAN 2500 PSI

This guide presents information on materials, fabrication, properties, design, and handling of cellular concretes with oven-dry densities greater than 50 pcf (800 kg/cu m) and aggregate concretes with oven-dry densities above 50 pcf (800 kg/cu m) but whose compressive strengths are less than 2500 psi (175 kgf/sq cm). The usual density range of the concrete considered is 50 pcf to 120 pcf. Those concretes in the lower portion of this range are generally used for thermal and sound insulation fills for roofs, walls, and floors. At the higher densities they are used in cast-in-place walls, floors, and roofs, and also for precast elements such as wall and floor panels. /Author/
