A Case Study on Compressive Strength of Geocrete

Dr. S. Siddiraju, M. Pavan Kumar

Geocement is obtained by the chemical reaction between silicon (Si) and aluminum (Al) ions and the chemical reaction takes place in the process of polymerization. Geocement doesnt require water at all for mixing and curing processes. It reacts with a special types of binder, known as geobinder in which both are combined to form a hardened mass, known as Geocrete. It can attain high initial strength gain within 3 hours of casting. Geocement is an alkali based cement, prevents the bacterial growth and is ideal for sewerage pipes, water pipes for storage and in food processing industries. This cement has a better acid resistance. Geocement make an eco-friendly environmental product. Geocement plays a vital role to reduce the global warming by reducing carbon dioxide emission by using a liquid binder. The aim of present experimental investigation is to study the properties of geocement i.e. the workability, compressive strength of geocrete. The project deals with M25 grade of Concrete. The test results are prepared by the combination of normal concrete and geocrete. At the age of 28 days, the compressive strength of M25 grade concrete is 32.26 MPa whereas the compressive strength of geocrete at the age of 28 days is 86 MPa. The major finding of this study is that the compressive strength of geocrete is more than that of normal concrete.
