The effects of both additions of fly ash and polystyrene (PS) beads were studied on compressive strength of foamed cement composites. The increasing amount of fly ash addition up to 6 wt. % has been found to increase the compressive strength of the foamed cement composites. It was found that fly ash has a potential as sand replacement materials in cement composites. The addition of 0.1 wt.% PS beads produced higher values of compressive strength after 14 days and 28 curing days respectively.
