Abstract: The primary intent of this paper is to study replacement of coarse aggregate with RCA of M40 grade concrete in different proportions such as 0%,10%, 20%, 30% and 40% and also to collate the results of geo-polymer concrete made with recycled coarse aggregates(GPCRCA) with geo-polymer concrete of natural coarse aggregate(GPCNA) and controlled concrete of respective grade. Geo-polymer concrete (GPC) is observed to be more resistant towards sulphate attack, with both in (CA) and (RCA) to a replacement of 30%, when it is compared with the similar grade of controlled concrete(CC). The durability of the concrete cubes are analyzed by immersing in 5% concentration solutions for a time period of 15, 45,75 and 105 days, The change of weight and compressive strength towards resistance is evaluated . Results stipulated that Geo-polymer concrete is highly resistant to Sodium sulphate and Magnesium sulphate.
Keywords: Geo-polymer Concrete, Recycled Aggregate, Alkaline Solutions, Controlled Concrete Sodium Sulphate and Magnesium Sulphate.
