Abstract
Self-compacting geopolymer concrete (SCGC) holds promise as an eco-friendly and high -performance construction material with the potential to contribute to sustainable development. Self-compacting geopolymer concrete is a type of concrete that two innovative technologies. It is designed to have high followability and the ability to fill intricate and congested reinforcement within the need for external vibration or compaction. The constituents of SCGC are activated with various molarities of alkaline solution containing sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and sodium silicate (Na2SiO3) Ground granulated blast furnace slag, fly ash and superplasticizer. M30 grade concrete was prepared using trial and error process. Workability tests like slump flow, L-Box Test, U- Box Test and V- funnel tests are conducted to assess fresh properties of SCGC. Mechanical properties such as Cube compressive strength, splitting tensile strength test evaluated. The comparison was established by preparing normal SCC and to test parametrically with superior properties of SCGC towards SCC.
