Autoclave Aerated Concrete

Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is a lightweight, precast, concrete building material suitable for producing concrete masonry unit (CMU) like blocks.

AAC is well suited for high-rise buildings and those with high temperature variations. Due to its lower density, high-rise buildings constructed using AAC require less steel and concrete for structural members. The mortar needed for laying of AAC blocks is reduced due to the lower number of joints. Similarly, the material required for rendering is also lower due to the dimensional accuracy of AAC. The increased thermal efficiency of AAC makes it suitable for use in areas with extreme temperatures, as it eliminates the need for separate materials for construction and insulation, leading to faster construction and cost savings.

  • Model Parameters
    • LOD LOD info

      Level of Development (LOD):

      LOD 100 – Elements of the component are not modeled in 3D. Photos are provided and information about the item is attached to product page. 2D dimensioned drawings may be provided

      LOD 200 – Elements of the component are modeled in 3D. Any information derived from the 3D model is considered approximate in terms of shape, size and location. 2D dimensioned drawings may be provided to supplement the 3D model

      LOD 300 - Elements of the entire component are modeled in 3D. Quantity, size, shape, and orientation can all be measured directly from the model without referring to non-modeled information such as notes or dimension call-outs

      LOD 350 – Elements of the entire component are modeled in 3D, along with ancillary elements such as supports and connections. Quantity, size, shape and orientation call all be measured directly from the model without referring to non-modeled information such as notes or dimension call-outs

      LOD 400- Elements of the entire component are modeled in sufficient detail and accuracy for fabrication of the represented component
