The objective of this project is to study the effect of class fly ash (FA) and ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) on the mechanical properties of geopolymer concrete (GPC) at different replacement levels (FA0-GGBS100, FA25-GGBS75, FA50-GGBS50; FA75-GGBS25, FA100, GGBS0). Sodium silicate (Na2SiO3) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution have been used as alkaline activators. In the present investigation, it is proposed to study the mechanical properties viz. compressive strength, split tensile strength of low calcium fly ash and GGBS based geopolymer concrete. These properties have been determined at different curing periods like 7, 28, 56 and 90 days and at ambient room temperature.
