Geopolymer concrete for environmental protection
MetadataShow full item record
Extensive studies conducted on fly ash-based geopolymer concrete are presented. Salient factors that influence the properties of the geopolymer concrete in the fresh and hardened states are identified. Test data of various short-term and long-term properties of the geopolymer concrete are then presented. The paper describes the results of the tests conducted on large-scale reinforced geopolymer concrete members and illustrates the application of the geopolymer concrete in the construction industry. Some recent applications of geopolymer concrete in the precast construction and the economic merits of the geopolymer concrete are also included.
