open in viewer

Cement and concrete are widely used in building and construction practices throughout the world. The use of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) requires use of additional energy and poses environmental damage. The objective of this project is to provide a green alternative construction material to OPC by geopolymerization of industrial wastes. This study made an effort to develop a low-cost working recipe that utilizes a combination of fly ash (FA) and red mud (RM) with different additives to create a geopolymer with comparable or better performance to OPC. The effectiveness of the methodology was tested by evaluating the synthesis factors and testing the unconfined compressive strength.
