Mechanical Property of Foamed Light Weight Concrete with Wasted Expanded Poly-Styrene ;;;;;
To improve the vulnerable point and the mechanical property of the existing lightweight foamed concrete, this study was intend to manufacture the lightweight foamed concrete with wasted expanded poly-styrene, examinate and analyze the mechanical property of its. The experiment was being processed with mixing the wasted expanded poly-styrene maximum 40 % by stages and which was mainly basis on the practical mixture. The results of the experiment are following. The flow value is most affected by the mixtured rate of the wasted expanded poly-styrene. The more the mixtured ratio, the less the flow value and the more the more the unit quantity of cement and the W/C, the more the flow value. The apparent specific gravity indicated 0.31∼0.54 and which is seemed to be mainly included in the 0.4 degree and 0.5 degree that are regulated in the KS F 4039. The more the mixtured wasted poly-styrene ratio, the less the apparent specific gravity. The absorbing ratio which was depend on the mixture condition indicated 11 ∼46% and the more the mixtured ratio of the wasted expanded poly-styrene, the less the absorbing ratio remarkably. The compressive strength of the lightweight foamed concrete had a tendency to increase as the mixtured ratio of the wasted poly-styrene, the ratio quantity of cement and the apparent specific gravity increasing but as the ratio of bubble decreasing. The W/C affected little.
