Expanded polystyrene (EPS) in concrete: A bibliometric analysis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceedingpeer-review


Concrete as a building material is being used in construction all over the world. The advancement of concrete research, particularly lightweight concrete, is promising since it can bring structural and building insulation benefits. In recent years, the term "environmentally friendly concrete"has also gained popularity. Another study topic that has begun to be widely researched is the use of lightweight aggregates as one of the ways for creating lightweight concrete. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is one of the aggregate materials to be cautious about. The research was carried out in the form of bibliometric analysis, with VOS viewer software used to generate the visualisation, with the goal of seeing research development linked to expanded polystyrene lightweight material as part of a concrete-forming composition. According to the findings of the studies, research on expanded polystyrene and concrete is still dominated by mechanical characteristics and the production of lightweight concrete. However, research issues linked to construction applications, including as walls, insulating materials, reinforced concrete, and sandwich panels, have begun to get widespread attention.
