Abstract: Research for complete OPC free cement is as of recently advancing and there is a need for making elective restricting bosses which are earth neighborly. One such option is seen to be geo polymer which routinely contains fly garbage, sodium silicate, and sodium or potassium hydroxide (NaOH or KOH). Since, many coal based force plants in India have been leaving an immediate consequence of pushed towards cleaner importance age and this may induce absence of fly ash in future. The generation of Ordinary Portland concrete and the use of typical waterway sand are expanded because of the interest of cement in development Industries. The emanation of CO2 increments during the generation of concrete and simultaneously the accessibility of waterway sand is likewise getting costlier and shortage because of illicit digging of stream sand. The primary intension of this exploration paper is to center the eco inviting elective material for the concrete and waterway sand. In the present study an experimental investigation was conducted on fly ash based geo polymer cement is examine the clean and hardened characteristic of geo polymer cement by using steel fibers. The percentage addition of steel fibers are 0.00%, 0.50%, 1.00%, 1.50%, 2.00%. The addition of steel fibers from 0% to 2%, the estimation of droop diminishes the 60 mm to 25 mm with increment in the level of steel standards. The estimation of compaction factor increments from 0.84 to 0.95 for M30 Grade concrete with increment in the level of steel standards from 0% to 2%.
Keywords: Geo Polymer, Fly Ash, Sodium Silicate, and Sodium, Potassium Hydroxide, Fresh and Hardened Properties.
