Abstract
The increasing demand of environment friendly construction has been the driving force for developing sustainable and economical building materials. • The critical aspects influencing the development are performance of the materials under different and special user conditions, economic aspects as well as environmental impact aspects. Cement is an energy consuming and high greenhouse gas emitting product. • Geopolymers are gaining increased interest as binders with low CO2-emission in comparison to Portland cement. In the present investigation, • the mechanical properties of flyash based geopolymer concrete (GPC) were studied. • Experimentally measured values of the compressive strength and split tensile strength of GPC specimens made from low, medium and higher grades compared with reference to the control mixes (OPC). • The regression model analysis was carried out to study the relationship between the Compressive strength and Split tensile strength and It was found that the mechanical behaviour of GPC is similar to that of ordinary Portland cement(OPC) concrete.
