PROJECT SUMMARY

Foam concrete utilization research

This material science project studies the building properties of foam concrete and the potential for wider use of the material in architecture and construction. The project raises some fundamental questions regarding concrete, yet seeks realistic solutions for practical application.

It is driven by the general advantage of foam concrete to reduce the consumption of material and other resources (principally cement and energy).
