• Relation between the material’s oxide composition and the strength is studied.
• Typical range of the major oxides for producing good geopolymer concretes has been found.
• Validation of the findings from the literature survey with the experimental work has been made.
Off late, geopolymer concrete has gained significant attention in the construction industry because of the benefits that it brings via, by-product waste utilization, reduction in greenhouse gas emission. Studies reveal that the chemical oxide composition of the raw material (viz., fly ash) strongly influences the mechanical behavior and durability properties of geopolymer concrete. However, not many studies have paid attention towards the influence of an oxide percentage in the raw material on the compressive strength of the geopolymer concrete. In this paper, an attempt has been made to study the compressive strength behavior against the percentage of oxides (viz., SiO2, Al2O3, Fe2O3, CaO etc.) present in the raw material which were employed in the production of geopolymer concrete. In this extensive data has been collected from various earlier research publications. Trends for 7 & 28 day compressive strengths against individual oxide component percentages were developed, and it was observed that the strength of geopolymer concrete differs greatly with the variation in percentage of the individual oxide component. Also, each oxide has shown distinct influence on the compressive strength of geopolymer concrete. Further, it has been noticed that the compressive strength of a sample has been predominantly influenced by the percentage of alumina-silicate oxides, and whereas oxides like CaO and Fe2O3 even though lesser in amount compared to alumina-silicate oxides have shown a distinctive effect on the strength built-up. Also, the oxide molar ratios influence on the compressive strengths has been analysed and it was noticed that compared to individual oxide composition its influence is not major on the compressive strength development. Therefore, knowing the typical range of the major oxides percentage required for achieving superior compressive strength will be beneficial in developing concrete mix proportion.
