The purpose of this thesis is to model the expansion behavior of aqueous slurries. Foamed or cellular material made using such method is known, especially in the concrete industry. What appears to be lacking in the literature is the knowledge of pore formation and pore growth in inorganic particles based on aqueous slurry systems that result in the formation of cellular structures. The motivation of this study is to provide a scientific view in identifying and explaining the critical parameters that govern the pore growth and expansion of such slurry based systems. Bubble growth and pore formation are also studied experimentally. Experimental results are used to compare with the empirical study conducted by Kanehira at al. (Kanehira, et al., 2013), and mathematical modeling of pore formation plotted with Wolfram Mathematica software. Experimental procedure consists of three types of aluminum and calcium ratios which provide information about bubble growth and pore formation. These types are 50% aluminum – 50% calcium hydroxide (50/50), 70% aluminum – 30% calcium hydroxide (70/30), and 80% aluminum – 20% calcium hydroxide (80/20). According to the results of studies, mathematical modeling system consists of the pressure difference between the inside and outside of a spherical bubble as the driving force for defining growth. While aluminum ratio increases, bubble growth rate decreases due to release of hydrogen gases which affect bubble expansion phenomenon. In the experimental and mathematical modeling, 50/50 ratio has maximum bubble growth rate compared to 70/30 and 80/20 ratios. The results of experimental and mathematical modeling suggest that viscosity is a very significant parameter which controls the bubble growth rate.
