Abstract: This paper presents the behavior of geopolymer concrete with small and big fibers. The aluminosilicate materials used for geopolymer concrete are fly ash and GGBS. For this study standard cube, cylinder and beam specimens are casted and tested to investigate compressive, split tensile and flexural strengths. The experimental results shows that incorporation of steel fibers for the geopolymer mixes improve the strength properties. Few models are generated to estimate the strengths with alliance of cube compressive strength.
Keywords: Small Fibers, Big Fibers, Geopolymer, Compressive, Split Tensile, Flexural Strength.
Scope of the Article: Concrete Engineering
