Abstract: Geopolymer concrete is a type of concrete which is produced by reacting with a caustic activator to aluminum and silicate bearing material. Materials such as fly ash or iron and metal slag are commonly used, which helps to create a cleaner environment. Consistently 87 to 100 million tons of flyash are created from India’s coal-based thermal power stations, and force is that way into a country’s success and improvement. In India, power generation spends 70% of the nation’s coal generation along these lines and produces 100 million tons of debris per year. The flyash is expected to stretch by 2012 to at least 175 million tonnes per annum. Now, having seen that debris is such a useful and valuable material that it is often used for a tremendous number of uses such as construction segments, concrete, dike development, raising, dykes, agribusiness and mine filling material. It’s effectively acknowledged for scale usage as opposed to arranging at high dealing with costs. This content arrangement with geopolymer concrete to supply the geo-polymer concrete is completely supply with flyash and Ground granulated slag. Fine aggregate is replaced with powdered quarry and M.Sand. Coarse Aggregate (20 mm) is replaced with 10 mm Aggregate Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and sodium silicate (Na2Sio3) game plans are commonly used for polymerization. The use of fly-debris and GGBS help in diminishing the contamination by dispensing with carbon-dioxide and carbon monoxide gas which is created in assembling of concrete. This paper uses fly ash, GGBS, quarry dust and 10 mm aggregate with alkaline solution to analyze geopolymer concrete.
