Abstract :

The geopolymer concrete has stepped in the construction industry as an alternate to the cement based concrete. Many of the research about geopolymer concrete states that it has potential to replace the cement based concrete in many countries depending on the locally available resources. The present review deals with the study of constituents of geopolymer concrete. Attempt has been made to collect information about the locally available constituents of geopolymer concrete and the ongoing research and few mechanical properties with and without fibres in concrete were discussed. The geopolymer concrete chosen is based on 100% ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) cured in laboratory in typical tropical ambient environmental conditions.
