    Various features of the foamed concrete research and development work undertaken by the Concrete Technology Unit (CTU) at the University of Dundee are discussed. The work is being done in partnership with industry, government and the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP). The characteristics of foamed concrete include: low to ultra-low plastic density; excellent thermal insulating capacity; non-combustible with good fire resistance; and use of recycled and secondary aggregate fines. A new project, supported by WRAP and industry, has just been initiated and is aimed at overcoming client and specifier concerns over the use of RSA in foamed concrete by examining engineering properties
