Abstract


This article provides information about the production of foamed concrete consider advantages and disadvantages of foamed concrete as a building material. The recommendations for its application for rehabilitation, reconstruction and construction of buildings and structures in the Republic of Iraq.Currently, in the Republic of Iraq, there is a need to rebuild the housing and construction destroyed by fighting. This problem can be solved through the use of cheap modern materials with high physical- chemical and technological characteristics. Such building materials include foamed concrete. It can be successfully used in the construction of low-rise buildings in the Republic of Iraq.In the modern low-rise building, increasing application of lightweight concrete, which are a type of non-saturated aerated concrete hardening, it will require thorough study, especially in the conditions of long-acting load. For a long time application of a load and its value it substantially affects several important properties of concrete, especially its strength, durability and deformability.Foamed concrete building material is considered attractive, as a result of flexible production technologies and the excellent properties of the target, along with the economic benefits. Foamed concrete in comparison with other similar construction materials exceeds in many aspects in view, it is preferable to use it in present time in Iraq.
