Durability Properties Of Geopolymer Concrete With Flyash And Metakaolin

[Full Text]



A.Lakshmi Deepak, Dr. T.V.S. Vara Lakshmi



Geo-Polymer Concrete GPC, Fly Ash, Metakoalin, Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH), Sodium Silicate (Na2SiO3), Molarity, Acids, Chlorides.



Concrete is the most heavily consumed material overall the world. About 6000 million tons of cement is manufactured every year producing about 6 percent of total CO2 produced in the world. In this study Geo-Polymer concrete was produced to potentially controlling the CO2. Geo-Polymer concrete is produced from waste materials like Metakaolin and Fly-Ash replacing the cement content in the mixture. The main objective of the study is to quantify the effect of Acid and Chloride attack on the strength of concrete. Sodium Hydroxide molarity is maintained as 10M and 12M throughout the study and Alkaline liquids (Sodium Hydroxide and Sodium Silicate) proportion as 1:3.The unit weight of geo polymer concrete was assumed as 2400 kg/m3 in deriving the mix design.
