A research program was conducted with the aim of studying the physical and flexural properties of cellular concrete containing flyash. Two different types of fibers were also added to some mixes to investigate the effect of fibers on the performance of this type of concrete. Four different densities of cellular concrete were used, 80, 90, 100 and 110 lb/cu.ft. A total number of 180 standard size cylinders and 32 small beams were made to measure the variation of the compressive strength, modulus of elasticity and tensile strength. Moreover, sixteen beams 5×8×66 in. were cast and tested to determine the flexural strength of flyash cellular concrete beams.
