Geopolymer reinforced concrete structural elements
Geopolymers is an alkali-activated amorphous aluminosilicious cementitious material exhibiting the ideal properties of rock-forming minerals. Common aluminosilicate material used for producing geopolymer is fly ash and slag, both industrial by products. While a good progress has been achieved in developing geopolymer concrete focused on micro-scale level, relatively limited research has been conducted at load-bearing members such as reinforced concrete beams, columns, slabs and more. This project aims at investigating the behaviour of structural elements made of geopolymer reinforced concrete.
