Abstract—Aerated lightweight concrete have many advantages when compared with conventional concrete such as advanced strength to weight ratio, lower coefficient of thermal expansion, and good sound insulation as a result of air voids within aerated concrete. This paper is attention to classified of aerated lightweight concrete into foamed concrete and autoclaved concrete. Also, it is exhibits the raw materials used in aerated concrete, types of agent, properties and applications. The production method is classified for each foamed and autoclaved concrete. The literature review of aerated lightweight properties is focuses on the porosity, permeability, compressive strength and splitting strength.

Index Terms—aerated concrete, cellular concrete, foamed concrete, autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC)
