In this paper, we report the results of our investigation on the possibility of producing foam concrete by using a geopolymer system. [] Key Method Class C fly ash was mixed with an alkaline activator solution (a mixture of sodium silicate and NaOH), and foam was added to the geopolymeric mixture to produce lightweight concrete. The NaOH solution was prepared by dilute NaOH pellets with distilled water.
