Modified guidelines for geopolymer concrete mix design using Indian standard
MetadataShow full item record
This experimental study is intended to identify the mix ratios for different grades of Geopolymer Concrete by trial and error method. A new Design procedure was formulated for Geopolymer Concrete which was relevant to Indian standard (IS 10262-2009). The applicability of existing Mix Design was examined with the Geopolymer Concrete. Two kinds of systems were considered in this study using 100% replacement of cement by ASTM class F flyash and 100% replacement of sand by M-sand. It was analyzed from the test result that the Indian standard mix design itself can be used for the Geopolymer Concrete with some modification.
