ABSTRACTThis project presents the results of the
investigation conducted on a lightweight foamed concrete using different
reagents; Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Lithofoam, with a view to
determining its potential as a construction material in Nigeria. The properties
investigated on the foamed concrete having target density of 1800kg/m3
were: workability, bulk density and compressive strength. The foamed concretes produced
using SLS were developed using a w/c ratio of 0.5 and a mix r...
