Abstract: Elimination of cement in concrete was found to get increased with the introduction of geopolymer concrete. In that geopolymer concrete, natural aggregate was replaced by artificial thermal ash aggregate. The mix design was arrived by trail. The replacement level of artificial aggregate was 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 percentages by weight of natural aggregate. The results of workability and mechanical properties of the mixes are find to be good. About 135% in compressive strength, 15% in split tensile strength and 987% in flexural strength was find to be increased.
