The "Research Journal of Concrete and Geopolymer Technology" is an international journal especially aims to be a principal source of research papers and scholarly articles through the promotion of research publications especially designed for the investigation and application of innovative Geopolymer Technology as well as Concrete Technology in the sector of constructions and infrastructures.
This journal is planned to reflect recent advancements and developments being brought about in the novel field of potentially promising Geopolymer composites and OPC based composites technology. The word “Geopolymer” is coined to an inorganic material synthesized at lower temperature in an alkali medium in the course of exothermic reaction kinetics of “Geopolymerization”. It is a kind of synthesis which is analogous to geo-synthesis of natural rock forming process, whereby Alumina and Silica rich precursors react with alkali activator solutions to produce Geopolymers. Quite recently, this new-fangled emerging technology and Geopolymer construction composites have drawn attraction of universal researchers, scientists and construction engineers not merely for exhibiting excellent attributes viz., high early strength as well as resistances to thermal, fire, freeze thaw and chemicals but also for consuming six times lesser energy and nine times lesser emissions of CO2 – a primary Green House Gas as compared to existing OPC production process proving them eco-benevolent. Thus, they conserve natural restricted resources besides their incorporation with diverse waste extends a solution to get rid of profuse diverse wastes systematically otherwise filling open lands and creating pollution of air, soils, surface and sub surface waters along with health hazards.
The aim of "Research Journal of Concrete and Geopolymer Technology" is primarily based on most modern research topic of Geopolymer Technology, whereby the publishing of the best research articles on Geopolymer and OPC composites (Paste, mortar and concrete), various supplementary building materials that may found incorporating concrete. The journal publishes an extensive range of ground-breaking novel most modern research, on the properties and performance of geopolymers or OPC composites; ultramodern experimental techniques; and the potential for improved building materials.
It is the objective of the journal to go for the publication of unique and special issues dedicated to topics of modern or of increasing interest. The journal aims to offer a unifying foundation for collaboration among designers, manufacturers, engineers, and materials scientists. At a time when the pressure is mounting on most of the field engineers, architects and contractors to optimise the application of novel cutting edge materials and up-to-the-minute modern innovative technologies, Journal of Concrete and Geopolymer Technology contributes deep-seated essential data that will lend a hand to enhance efficacy, competitiveness and production in global markets. It is consequently essential reading for all academicians and professionals engaged with research investigations into, or specification of construction materials.
The chief publications of the journal are original research articles enclosing novel information and review articles. The journal will throw lights on papers with a wide interest, on the basis of their field of study, the research excellence, the originality of the findings and the potential for assimilating the ultimate results.
