Comparison of geopolymer fly ash and ordinary Portland cement to the strength of concrete
(American Scientific Publishers, 2013-12)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of various fly ash: aggregate ratios by using fly ash (FA) based geopolymer compared to ordinary Portland cement (OPC) on the compressive strength of concrete. The different ...
The effect of curing temperature on physical and chemical properties of geopolymers
(Elsevier BV, 2011)
Fly ash-based geopolymers required heat to increase the geopolymerization process in order to obtain higher compressive strength. As such, geopolymer samples were prepared using different curing temperatures (room temperature, ...
Microstructure studies on the effect of the alkaline activators of fly ash-based geopolymer at elevated heat treatment temperature
(Trans Tech Publications, 2013)
Fly ash-based geopolymers are new binding materials produced to replace the ordinary Portland cement (OPC) used in concrete. In this research, the effect of alkaline activators on the compressive strength and the microstructure ...
Correlation between Na 2SiO 3/NaOH ratio and fly ash/alkaline activator ratio to the strength of geopolymer
(Trans Tech Publications, 2012)
Geopolymer requires an alkaline activator to induce it pozzolanic property and to accelerate the geopolymerisation process. The geopolymerisation process occurs due to the mixing of fly ash, sodium silicate and sodium ...
Review on the various ash from palm oil waste as geopolymer material
(Advanced Study Center Co. Ltd., 2013)
The solid waste from palm oil mill industry has been increasing annually where it has been reported that the palm oil waste was produced 4 million tons/years in Malaysia only. Hence, the solution to overcome the problems ...
The relationship of NaOH molarity, Na2SiO3/NaOH ratio, fly ash/alkaline activator ratio, and curing temperature to the strength of fly ash-based geopolymer
(Trans Tech Publications, 2011)
Geopolymer, produced by the reaction of fly ash with an alkaline activator (mixture of Na2SiO3 and NaOH solutions), is an alternative to the use of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) in the construction industry. However, there ...
