An Experimental Investigation on Behaviour of Geopolymer Concrete with Ferro Cement
This project presents the experimental investigation of the resistance of geopolymer mortar slabs to impact loading. For this, specimens of size 200mmx210mmx100mm. The results obtained show that the addition of the above mesh reinforcement has increased the impact residual strength ratio of geopolymer ferrocement by 4-28 that of the reference plain ferrocement mortar slab. The combination of 1 layer of weld mesh and 4 layers of chicken mesh of geopolymer ferrocement specimens show the best performance in the test, i.e. energy absorbed, residual impact strength ratio (I-rs), It was concluded that the increase in Volume fraction of reinforcement V-r, increases the energy absorption and also residual impact strength ratio of geopolymer ferrocement than that of ferrocement specimens.
