AbstractIn recent years light and medium weight concretes have become more and more widely used in building. Their merit lies not only in effective heat insulation properties, but also in economy of handling and high strength to weight ratio.In general, these concretes owe their light weight to a large number of air voids. These may be achieved by introducing gas into the material either by chemical action or by mechanical means. In all cases the properties of void space is high leading directly to the higher moisture absorbency found in most of these materials.
