Advances in Geopolymer Concrete: A Comprehensive Review

Bhukya Prakash | Dr. M. V. Krishna Rao

Abstract: Geopolymer concrete has emerged as a promising alternative to traditional Portland cement - based concrete due to its reduced environmental impact, improved mechanical properties, and potential for sustainable construction practices. This paper presents a comprehensive review of recent advancements in geopolymer concrete technology, focusing on key research findings, innovative materials, and novel applications. A systematic analysis of 40 selected research articles is conducted to elucidate the progress made in the field, covering topics such as material composition, mechanical properties, durability, sustainability, and structural performance. The review highlights the diverse range of materials used in geopolymer concrete, including fly ash, metakaolin, recycled aggregates, and various fibers. Furthermore, it examines the influence of different additives, curing methods, and mix design parameters on the properties of geopolymer concrete. The paper also discusses emerging trends such as the incorporation of hybrid fibers, utilization of waste materials, and development of high - performance geopolymer composites. Finally, future research directions and potential challenges in the widespread adoption of geopolymer concrete are outlined, aiming to contribute to the advancement of sustainable construction practices worldwide.
