Title: 523.1R-06: Guide for Cast-in-Place Low-Density Cellular Concrete
Author(s): ACI Committee 523
Publication: Technical Documents
Appears on pages(s): 13
Keywords: cellular concrete; engineered fill; foaming agent; geotechnical fill; insulating concrete; insulating concrete roof decks; low-density cellular concrete; low- density controlled low-strength material (LD-CLSM); preformed foam.
Abstract:This guide provides information on the materials, properties, design, proper handling, and applications of cast-in-place low-density cellular concretes having oven-dry densities of 50 lb/ft3 (800 kg/m3) or less. Roof deck systems and geotechnical applications often incorporate these lowdensity cellular concretes.
