A recent poll in Britain found that public support for sanctions against Russia is falling as fuel and prices rise.
The proportion of people willing to accept higher fuel prices as a result of western sanctions against Russia fell 14 percentage points to 36% from 50% in March, according to a survey conducted for the Telegraph by consultancy Redfield & Wilton Strategies.
Global energy and fuel prices have soared since the start of the year and remain high because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and uncertainty over Russian supplies.
The survey also found that 54% of people believe their own financial situation has worsened in the past year, up 12 percentage points from 42% two months ago. Sixty-two percent think things will get worse in the year ahead. Less than a third of respondents said they had received a pay rise to keep up with inflation, with two-thirds of those saying it was not enough to keep up with rising living costs.
The figures suggest that public concern about the conflict with Ukraine is now likely to be overtaken by financial worries.
Separately, the UK's consumer price index rose 7 percent this month from a year earlier, the highest since March 1992, according to figures released recently by the Office for National Statistics. In addition, a separate report released a few days ago by the Centre for Economics and Business Research said that real household disposable income in the UK will fall by 3% in 2022, equivalent to a loss of £2,320 per household, which would lead to the biggest drop in living standards since the 1950s. That is mainly because wages aren't keeping up with rising energy and fuel costs.
The prices of other commodities like the foamed concrete are also expected to be influenced.
Foam concrete is prone to cracking during maintenance, mainly caused by unscientific construction and maintenance of the proportioning. Luchuang has a series of solutions. In the years of construction, Luchuang has accurate material proportions for different climatic conditions and different terrains. The construction quality is industry-leading.
Aggregates rarely change during concrete hardening and use unless there is a significant volume change due to heat and cold. Chemical shrinkage, carbonization shrinkage, drying shrinkage, etc., all come from cement slurry. Foam concrete is mainly composed of cement and does not contain aggregates, determining its considerable shrinkage.
The strength development of foamed concrete is relatively slow in the initial curing stage, and its low thermal conductivity makes it difficult for the heat generated by hydration to be discharged to the outside in time, which often leads to a sharp increase in the initial temperature of foamed concrete, resulting in volume expansion. Internal thermal stress and cracks are generated.
The strength of foamed concrete is at a low level (generally not higher than 10MPa) even after it is completely hardened, so any abnormal external mechanical force will also cause its deformation or even cracking and failure. Possible technical approaches to reduce shrinkage and control cracking of foamed concrete.
Based on the above-mentioned analysis of the volume deformation phenomenon and internal causes of concrete in the process of hydration and hardening and use, and the study of the similarities and differences between foam concrete and ordinary structural concrete in terms of composition, structure, and performance, combined with foam concrete preparation and application may appear In this paper, the following possible technical approaches are proposed on how to reduce the shrinkage and control cracking of foamed concrete.
1) Use fast-hardening and low-heating cement as the cementitious material for foam concrete;
2) Add an appropriate amount of fine aggregate, and choose a reasonable mix of cement and sand;
3) Strengthen early maintenance and timely heat dissipation to reduce artificial abnormal external mechanical impact;
4) Introduce appropriate and appropriate expansion components to make up for volume shrinkage; reduce space constraints and increase free deformation components.

Affected by the present complex international situation and the epidemic, the future of global financial markets, futures markets, and stock markets is still highly uncertain. For this reason, I suppose the price of the foamed concrete would continue to rise.
