Effect of Ordinary Portland Cement on Some Properties of Pervious Geopolymer Concrete
In this research, a study is made on the Pervious Geopolymer Concrete (PGC), which is based on localmaterial(Metakaolin). The inclusion of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) as a partial substitute for Metakaolin (MK) for the production of (PGCs) has also been investigated. Pervious Geopolymer concrete was outputted from the local Metakaolin (MK), and ordinary Portland cement (OPC) as a partial substitute by weight of MK and silicate of sodium (Na2SiO3) and hydroxide of sodium (NaOH) solution. All PGC samples were cured after 24 hours from casting for five hours at a degree of the temperature of 50 ° C, then the testingafter 28 days. The compressive-strength, total content of voids, the strength of bending, dry-density, and thermal-conductivity of pervious Geopolymer concrete were examined. The mechanicalresults of testing ranged from (11.03 and 2.25) to (14.3 and 2.75) MPa for compressive-strength and flexural strength respectively.
