Experimental study on the strength of lightweight geopolymer concrete with eco-friendly material

Nithya Swaminathan, N.S. Elangovan, Jayaprithika Anandan

Abstract

The differences in properties between the lightweight aggregate concrete and normal conventional concrete at the selected equivalent mix ratios have forbidden the former from being used widely in construction industry. Studies have shown that the use of GGBS as a partial replacement of cementitious material, and M-sand as a replacement of fine aggregate, results in an increased strength in geopolymer normal weight concrete. In this study, Coconut shell is used as a replacement of conventional coarse aggregate to produce lightweight geopolymer coconut shell green concrete.

Keywords
coconut shell, lightweight concrete, GGBS, geopolymer
