Example text

The properties of the resulting foam concrete are given in Table III. This issue was reflected in the total surface area for RA silt shown in Table I and the mineralogical composition shown in Figure 1. Fresh and Hardened Properties of Silt Foamed Concrete The compressive strength of foamed concrete has a general relationship with the cement/silt ratio and the total water/cement ratio. Further work on pre-treatment methods with (or without) chemical admixtures is required to ensure that the water demand is kept to a minimum.

Compressive strength was tested at 3, 7 and 28 days in accordance with BS EN 12390-3 [10] and flexural and tensile strength following BS EN 12390-5 [23] and BS EN 12390-6 [24]. ISAT and water absorption tests were carried out in accordance with BS 1881-208 [25] and BS 1881-122 [26] respectively to determine permeation properties. The stockpiled FA was much coarser, with maximum particle size being 340µm. 0% for RA and 10% for stockpiled FA. 5%, suggesting that there was Portland cement paste present, which is supported by ettringite, observed using SEM in Figure 1 (shown as fine ‘needle’ like crystals).
