Eco cellular concrete

Abstract
The global construction industry needs a range of sustainable products where local resources together with industrial wastes are used for production of high performance materials. Cellular concrete gained its popularity due to its lower density and superior thermal insulation properties. Nowadays, there is a great variation regarding the mechanical and thermal properties of this kind of concrete. Furthermore, most of the research focused on either to obtain a structural cellular concrete with only good strength or as nonstructural material with only low thermal conductivity. The present research goal is to develop a sustainable and durable cellular concrete with a good balance between the mechanical and thermal properties, primarily made from cement, recycled glass waste powder and silica fume.
