Feasibility of Waste Materials In High Strength Geopolymer Building Blocks
Keywords:Brick waste, geopolymerization, geopolymer concrete blocks, masonry unit
Utilization of waste materials in geopolymerization enhances the sustainability of construction. This chaptr investigates the feasibility of utilizing waste materials in the production of high strength geopolymer building blocks.Suitability of locally available brick waste as a source material for geopolymer binder and the feasibility of ground granulated blast furnace slag in improving the strength characteristics of geopolymer binder was investigated. After optimizing the influencing parameters of geopolymerization, suitability of the proposed geopolymer binder in high strength concrete building blocks was verif ied with respect to strength and durability charecterstics. Results indicate promising outcomes with respect to strength and durability characterstics and suitability for load bearing construction with high strength requirements.
