Abstract

Autoclaved aerated concrete blocks are light in weight and density varies from 450-950 kg/Cum, that reduces the dead load of the main structure and have better earthquake resistance, have high compressive strength, has better moisture resistance, have better sound insulation property and absorbs less water, has better fire resistance and available in big blocks and requires less mortar, therefore it increases the speed of construction, so economical too when it is compared to conventional clay bricks. But, the AAC blocks show cracks on the surface due to loading, change in temperature, provision of reinforcement, and seismic zoning, and in this paper, a study is carried out to reduce the crack formation and solutions to reduce or to eliminate the crack.

Key Words

Autoclaved aerated concrete block, loading, temperature, reinforcement, cracks resistance
