Experimental Investigation and Structural Behavior of Geopolymer Concrete

Venkatesh S, Shivakumar D S, Sindhuja A


Abstract: Concrete is the worlds most versatile, durable and reliable construction material. Next to water, concrete is the most used material, which required large quantities of Portland cement. Ordinary Portland cement production is the second only to the automobile as the major generator of carbon dioxide, which polluted the atmosphere. This paper presents the results of a study on fly ash-based geo polymer concrete. The test parameters covered certain aspects of manufacture of geo polymer concrete. The paper also reports the effect of chemicals on Geo polymer concrete. The chemicals used include Hydrochloric acid (HCL), Sulphuric acid (H2SO4), Sodium sulphate (Na2SO4), Magnesium sulphate (MgSO4), Sodium chloride (NaCl). Total 72 cubes are casted for the experiment. Out of them 12 are used for Air and water curing for 14 and 28 days. Remaining 60 are used for 14 and 28 days tests of geo polymer concrete under the effect different chemicals.
