Authors:Sumedh P. Bodele || Swapnil R.Satone

Abstract:The Geo-polymer concrete (GPC) is representing the most promising green and eco-friendly substitute to Ordinary Portland cement (OPC). One of the most important ingredients in the conventional concrete is the Portland cement. The production of cement in the factory emits the enormous amount of carbon- dioxide which pollutes the environment. Therefore, low calcium fly ash based geopolymer concrete is provided because this concrete uses no Portland cement. The geo-polymer cement (which is obtained from the reaction of low calcium fly ash with the alkaline solution (i.e.) sodium hydroxide and sodium silicate) does not pollute the environment and so it is eco-friendly. SFRMGPC consisting of fly ash, GGBS, Alkali-activated solution, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and steel fiber. GGBS is obtained as a by-product i.e. waste from iron and steel industry from the blast furnace to produce a glassy, granular product which is then dried and crushed into a fine powder. It Increases the long-term strength, durability, and resistance to attack in peaty/acidic environments. To enhance the curing ground granulated blast furnace slag is added. Steel fibers increase the durability of geo-polymer concrete and it is proposed to determine and compare the differences in properties of geo-polymer concrete with GGBS and steel fiber. The investigation will consist 0f several tests which include workability test, compression test, split tensile strength and flexural strength. The fiber content varied from 0 to 1 % by weight of geo-polymer binder (Fly ash + GGBFS), also try to use of best molarity alkali solution. Concrete cube of 150mm x 150mm x 150mm will be considered for compression strength. Concrete cylindrical cube of internal diameter 15omm and height of 300mm will be considered for split tensile strength. Beams of 150mm x 150mm x 700 mm will be considered for the flexural strength. In this paper, an attempt is made to study steel fiber reinforced geo-polymer concrete by various aspects..
