Zero Cement Concrete with Self-Curing Technology: An Overview
Keywords:Geopolymer, Fly Ash, Thermal, Compressive Strength, Flexural Strength
Geopolymer concrete is the concept of environmental friendly construction material which helps in reducing the greenhouse gas emission, however it cannot be applied directly on field due to its steam curing process. To overcome this defect various researcher have found self-curing or ambient curing process to achieve same strength as in steam curing process for geopolymer. This paper presents an over review about self-cured or ambient cured geopolymer concrete produced by various methods.
