Abstract

The major problem in the world facing today is the environmental pollution. In the construction industry, mainly the production of Portland cement will cause the emission of pollutants results in environmental pollution. We can reduce the pollution effect on environment, by increasing the usage of industrial by products in our construction industry. Geopolymer mortar is such a one and in the present study, to produce the geo-polymer mortar, the Portland cement is partially replaced with Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS) and the fine aggregate is replaced with Quarry Dust. The compressive strength is calculated for each of the mix with ratio 1:3. The cube specimens are taken of size 70.6mm x 70.6mm x 70.6mm. The Geopolymer mortar specimens are tested for their compressive strength at the age of 7days, 14 days, 28 days, mixes of varying water-cement ratio as 0.45, 0.5, 0.6 respectively at different Stages of curing periods, the cubes strength are calculated for 7 days, 14 days, 28 days. The result shows that.
