The water to cement ratio of FC with the density

The effect of the chosen factors, such as the water-to-cement ratio of FC with a density of 400–800 kg/m3, the water content of FC with a density of 300–800 kg/m3, different filler types of FC with a density of 1200–1600 kg/m3, fiber content, curing conditions and dry density of FC with the density of 400–800 kg/m3 on mechanical properties is the subject of the studies as mentioned earlier. The compressive strength tests of the materials with the lower densities are rarely performed; nevertheless, the expected strength is extremely low compared to standard concrete, where the concrete with a density of 120–240 kg/m3 was investigated. Improvements in strength and flexibility were observed under triaxial compression for a low confinement level (30% of the compressive strength), while for the higher levels, the damage caused by confinement did not benefit in terms of strength and flexibility/toughness. In all uniaxial and triaxial compression tests, the damage caused by the disaggregation of the material skeleton has been observed. Regarding thermal properties of FC, authors have found the lightweight foam concrete, with a density of 600–1800 kg/m3, suitable for building use as insulating or fire-resisting material due to the porous internal structure, thus, very low thermal conductivity.
