Abstract

Geopolymer is an alkali aluminosilicate binder formed by the alkali silicate activation of aluminosilicate materials. This fabric has been examined extensively over the past several decades and shows promise as a greener option to Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) concrete. It has been found that geopolymer has good engineering properties with a reduced carbon footprint resulting from the zero-cement content. Since 1970’s many research projects have been carried out to investigate the strength, durability and microstructure of Geopolymer concrete. Trials have been done to study the effects of water solids ratio, binder content, the molar concentration of alkaline solution, curing conditions and aggregate to solids ratio. The present report surveys the research carried out on GeoPolymer Concrete (GPC) with fly ash (FA) and Ground Granulated Blast funace Slag (GGBS) for ambient conditions. The review also includes the work that has been carried out, to date, accounting for the effects of various ingredients, ratios and structural aspects on the behaviour of geopolymer concrete and present applications in construction industry.
