Effect of Different Aluminium Powder Content on the Behaviour of Aerated Concrete: Experimental and Finite Element Validation

Rana Shabbar, Paul Nedwell, Mohammed Al-Taee, and Zhangjian Wu
Abstract—Aerated concrete is produced by introducing gas into a concrete which has a low tensile strength. The aim of the current study is to investigate the behaviour of aerated concrete with different Al content under monotonic loads. A finite element (FE) model to produce a more sophisticated explanation of the AC behaviour in compression, is constructed. The results showed that an increase in Al content caused a decrease in the compressive strength, modulus of elasticity and density of aerated concrete. FE outputs hold a close agreement with the experimental values which can be confidently used instead of further potential experimental work.

Index Terms—Aerated concrete, aluminium powder, concrete behaviour and finite element.
