The study deliberates on the incorporation of Microwave Incinerated Rice Husk Ash (MIRHA) as a cement replacement material to produce foamed concrete. The mixes incorporating 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% MIRHA were prepared. The optimal mix design of MIRHA based on the mechanical properties is established. During this study, the research on RHA as cement replacement material is conducted. Besides, analysis of concretes characteristics are done for hardened concrete while the workability test is done for fresh concrete. This research adopts Taguchi approach with an Ll6 (45) to reduce the numbers of experiment. The optimal mix design properties are determined by using analysis of variance (ANOVA) method. The results obtained from this research shows that by adding MIRHA into foamed concrete, early strength can be developed within 3 to 7 days because it has fasten the reaction in the concrete. Beside that, as the optimal MIRHA that was found in this research is 5%, the data shows that the target strength of foam concrete according to load bearing which is 17 Mpa has been achieved.
