Foam concrete is a type of lightweight concrete. The density of the concrete can be reduced by introducing stable voids in hardened cement paste. The voids can be introduced by air or by gas. In this concrete, a foaming agent introduces air, so it is called foam concrete. Foam concrete generally has low density ranges from
Pervious Concrete is a special type of concrete that allows the water to percolate through it. It is made from a mixture of cement, coarse aggregate, and water. There is an absence of sand in this concrete due to which it develops interconnected voids which make this concrete porous and allows water to percolate through
