Abstract
The cost of building materials constitute 65% of the construction. A wide gap exists between the requirement and availability of building materials in the country. In order to meet the gap, among the new and substitute materials introduced by the N EO, one is Cellular Concrete. Substantial savings in the critical mate· rials such as steel and cement with overall economy is achieved in building construction by its use. Two plants one at Madras and the other at Poona have started producing Cellular Concrete products. The properties, the process of manufacture and the economy achieved by the use of cellular concrete in construction is dealt in this article. The production of Cellular Concrete enables utilization of large quantities of fly-ash, a waste material from the thermal power stations.
