What is it about?

Fly ash and GGBS-based geopolymer concrete has attracted attention due to its use of an oven curing technique. Not much literature is available on ambient curing technique for fly ash and GGBS-based GPC. It has been concluded from the literature that GPC has comparable mechanical properties to that of OPC concrete, but not much literature is available on the modulus of elasticity of GPC under ambient curing. This study examines the performance of geopolymer concrete and aims to determine the modulus of elasticity of GPC20, GPC40 and GPC60 with a combination of Fly ash and GGBS as a binder under ambient curing. A comprehensive assessment of their mechanical properties has been evaluated for making geopolymer concrete.

Why is it important?

An investigation on stress- strain behaviour of GPC under ambient curing was less as on today. Hence it needs to focus on it.
