Metakaolin, fly ash, and mostly granulated blast furnace slag (GBFS) are traditionally used in the production of geopolymer. This study, adding to the knowledge base on geopolymer concretes as an alternative to cement mixtures, explored an experimental approach that investigates the use of ceramic dust (CD) and rice husk ash (RHA) with high SiO content instead of GBFS in the production of geopolymers. For this purpose, instead of GBFS, RHA at proportions of 0, 5%, 10%, and 15% and CD at proportions of 0, 10%, 20%, and 30% were used in the production of geopolymer concrete. Read More
