Abstract

Flyash based geopolymer concrete is introduced in 1979 by Davidovits to reduce the use of OPC in concrete. Geopolymer is an inorganic alumino-hydroxide polymer synthesized form predominantly silicon and aluminum materials of geological origin and by product materials such as flyash (with low calcium) and GGBS. In this paper an attempt is made to study strength properties of geopolymer concrete using low calcium fly ash and slag as binder with combination NaOH & Na2SiO3 solutions as activators with different molarities 8M, 12M&16M. The specimen is cured at ambient temperature.
