Book Published: Foamed Concrete

Assalamualaikum and hallo everyone, 
My book titled “Foamed Concrete Properties at Elevated Temperatures: Potential Applications as Fire Resistant and Load Bearing Panel in Low Rise Residential Construction” has been published with International Publisher (Lambert Academic Publishing). After a lot of hard work and many late nights I am happy to declare that I am now a published author! It has been a long old slog but its totally been worth it. My book is available through most of the online book stores including Amazon for those who may want to purchase it. 

Thank you very much to all of those people who supported me, helped me and spurred me on. The details about the book as follows:


Foamed concrete is cementatious material integrated with mechanically entrained foam in the mortar slurry which can produce a variety of densities ranging from 400 to 1600 kg/m3. The application of foamed concrete has been primarily as a filler material in civil engineering works. This work explores the potential of using foamed concrete in building construction, as non-load-bearing partitions of lightweight load-bearing structural members. Experimental and analytical studies has been undertaken to develop quantification models to obtain thermal and mechanical properties of foamed concrete at ambient and elevated temperatures. Although foamed concrete mechanical properties are low in comparison to normal weight concrete, foamed concrete may be used as partition or light load-bearing walls in a low rise residential construction. The results of a preliminary feasibility study indicate that foamed concrete can achieve very good thermal insulation performance for fire resistance.

About the Author

Sr Dr Md Azree obtained his PhD in Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester in 2010. He is currently a Senior Lecturer at the Universiti Sains Malaysia. His specialisation lies in the area of foamed concrete, material properties at elevated temperatures, heat transfer, sandwich construction and robustness of structures under extreme loading.
