Paper Title
Experimental Investigation On Flexural Behavior Of Reinforced Geo-Polymer Concrete Under Day-Light Curing
  Siddharthan.K.S,  Narmadha.S

Environmental pollution is the biggest menace to the human race on this planet today. In the construction industry, mainly the production of Portland cement will cause the emission of pollutants. Nearly 120 million tone of fly ash get accumulated every year at the thermal power stations in India. In order to reduce the effect of above problems by increasing the usage of industrial by-products in our construction industry. In the present study, Geopolymer concrete is one in which the Portland cement is fully replaced with fly ash and alkaline solution are used as binding materials. Generally, geopolymer are adopted in precast construction which requires heat curing. But it is not possible in cast-in-situ. Hence Daylight curing is adopted for to overcome these difficulties. This paper presents the experimental investigation on flexural behavior of reinforced Geo-Polymer Concrete under Day-Light Curing. Geopolymer Concrete is an innovative method which is produced by the fully replacement of cement by fly ash with the combination of alkaline solution. The specimens are casted for M-25 grade under the molarity of 12M. The specimens of size 150x150x150mm cubes, 300mm height and 150mm diameter cylinders and 1200x150x200mm beams were cast and cured in the open atmosphere. The workability of fresh concrete, compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural behavior of beam are investigated. The geopolymer acts as good resistance to chloride penetration, sulphate attack and more workable, posses more strength than conventional concrete.

Keywords- Geoploymer, Fly Ash, Compressive Strength, Split Tensile Strength
