Abstract
Geopolymer concrete is a type of concrete that is produced using a geopolymer binder instead of traditional Portland cement. The geopolymer binder is typically derived from the reaction of an alum inosilicate material such as fly ash or slag, with an alkaline solution. Geopolymer concrete consists of a mixture of aggregates, the geopolymer binder, and water. The geopolymer binder is responsible for binding the aggregates together. Geopolymer concrete can be used in various applications similar to conventional concrete. These include residential and commercial buildings, infrastructure projects such as bridges and roads and precast concrete elements. After ordinary Portland cement (OPC)concrete, geopolymer concrete(GPC)is the most advanced form of concrete. GPC has many advantages including improved strength and durability properties. High early age strength and ambient curing of OPC helps to reduce the construction time.
