“Geopolymer (Alternate Binder) Concrete” - Dr. Mary Christiansen – Assistant Professor - UMD

Geopolymer concrete - an innovative material that is characterized by long chains or networks of inorganic molecules - is a potential alternative to conventional portland cement concrete for use in construction. It relies on minimally processed natural materials or industrial byproducts to significantly reduce its carbon footprint, while also being very resistant to many of the durability issues that can plague conventional concrete. This presentation will briefly describes geopolymer concrete materials and explore some of their strengths, weaknesses, and potential applications.
