Abstract

The current generation of “Sustainable development” which uses the less natural resource, energy as well as generates less CO compromising on strength and durability aspects. geopolymer concrete prepared from conventional alkali sodium hydroxide and sodium silicate curabl momentum now-a-days. In this paper, the paste phase and solid ph geopolymer concrete containing quarry dust and sand as fine aggregate, suitable for rigid pavement application, curable at ambient temperature discussion.The targeted compressive strength of 40MPa was achieved soon after days of air curing and maximum strength attained in 28 days is nearly 62MPa. Both the compressive strength and the flexural strength were within the paving grade concrete
