Abstract
Concrete is one of the most vital materials in construction industry. As the demand of concrete increases the Portland cement usage also increases due to the excess usage of cement, pollution also increases. To reduce the use of Portland cement in the concrete and utilization of industrial waste in the field of civil engineering. By introducing a new building material which significantly reduces the usage of Portland cement. On other hand the thermal power plants are consuming millions of tons of coal, in the process of power generation and as a result of that large quantities of fly ash is being produced which is a major problem. To overcome these two major problems i.e., to reducing the usage of OPC and proper utilization of fly ash, the concept proposed by Davidovits, is adopted to study new material called Geopolymer concrete
