Karthik’s area of research is broadly focused on replacement of cement in concrete, using fly ash and GGBS with the help of various fibres and analysing the behaviour through software like ANSYS.

Highlights:

Geo polymer is used as binder to completely replace the ordinary Portland cement in producing Geo polymer concrete (GPC). The main advantage is rapid strength gain, elimination of water curing, good mechanical and durability properties and is additional eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC). The main objective of this project is to investigate the flexural behaviour of hybrid fibre reinforced concrete, replacing the cement by geo polymer called as Hybrid Fibre Reinforced Geo Polymer Concrete (HyFGPC). The fibres using in this project was Reinforcement Bars (Rebar) as metallic fibres which was acquired from the renovated or demolished buildings, with the combination of non-metallic fibres. Various mix ratios of geo polymer and different volume fractions of fibres are going to use in this investigation.
