Reinforced Geopolymer concrete beams; Ansys R15.0; Max.Equivalent stresses (Von-Misses stress); Max. Normal Elastic Strain; Max.Shear Stress; Max.central deflection


The present study mainly focuses on analytical study of fly ash and GGBS blended reinforced geo polymer concrete beams. The beams were analyzed by using Ansys R15.0. The reinforced geo polymer beams analyzed were cured for 28days in an ambient room temperature itself. The conventional reinforced concrete beam analyzed were cured for 28 days in water. The proportions of source materials for geo polymer concrete used are fly ash(FA) 50- Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS) 50, FA0-GGBS100. The grade of Conventional Concrete (CC) was fixed equivalent to that of Geopolymer concrete with the earlier specified proportions. The grade of geo polymer concrete was fixed to be M45 by doing trial and error method. The beams were analyzed for two- point loading. The parameters such as Max.Equivalent stresses (Von-Misses stress), Max.Normal Stress, Max. Normal Elastic Strain, Max.Shear Stress, Max.Shear strain and Max.central deflection were found. The present study has given a final conclusion that the performance of reinforced geo polymer concrete (RGPC) beams was better than that of equivalent grade of reinforced conventional concrete beams.
