Abstract

There has been much research completed during recent years on the topic of geopolymer concrete. What has been missing is the combination of this research in a way that would allow use of geopolymer concrete as a replacement to concrete based on Ordinary Portland Cement. This dissertation addresses this requirement for a standard mix design for geopolymer concrete.

The research data was combined into a database and manipulated to give the ratios of sodium hydroxide solution to sodium silicate solution, alkaline liquid to fly ash or binder, water to geopolymer solids, superplasticizer to binder and also the molar weight of the sodium hydroxide solution.

The research data was combined into a database and manipulated to give the ratios of sodium hydroxide solution to sodium silicate solution, alkaline liquid to fly ash or binder, water to geopolymer solids, superplasticizer to binder and also the molar weight of the sodium hydroxide solution.

It was then possible to select a mix design for standard grades of Geopolymer concrete. The Class F Fly Ash and Ground-granulated Blast-furnace Slag mixture was selected to test these outputs of the ANNs.
