Abstract
The usage of concrete is increasing day by day. Concrete, being material of choice in construction industry could be composed of naturally available materials. Cement in concrete is a binding material which produced by making use of natural materials leading natural materials to deplete. The new generation concrete has been developed such as geopolymer concrete. Thus, using the alternative materials which are waste products such as Ground Granulated Blast Furnace slag, Granite powder and Marble Powder without using cement along with some chemicals such as Sodium Silicate and Sodium Hydroxide to bind the concrete ingredients together to produce geopolymer concrete. An attempt has been made to find out an optimum mix for the geopolymer concrete by replacing Ground Granulated Blast Furnace slag with Granite powder and Marble powder.
