This research work aims to study further sustainability to the cement less geopolymer concrete by partially replacing fine aggregate by iron Steel slag. Geopolymer concrete is one of the building materials that has become more popular in recent years because it is significantly more environmentally friendly than standard concrete. Geopolymer concrete usually includes fly ash, fine aggregate and coarse aggregate activated by means of alkaline liquids like sodium silicate and sodium hydroxide which is effective in oven curing. Further the Steel slag which is a byproduct obtained from Steel manufacturing industry can be used as a replacement to fine aggregate. By using this for construction purposes, it reduces environmental pollution. Geopolymer concrete of grade M25 with Steel slag as a partial replacement to fine aggregate was studied for its compressive behavior and compared with conventional cement concrete. The study derived that in all stages, the performance of the geopolymer beam with Steel slag was marginally better than the conventional beam with fine aggregate. This investigation work encourages the use of Steel aggregate ash in concrete with its inherent structural advantage, easy availability.
