The construction of conventional concrete structures produces a significant quantity of CO2 released into the environment which can directly impact human health and contribute to global warming. Geopolymer foam concrete is a low carbon eco-friendly concrete in which CO2 releasing cement is replaced with industrial waste materials. However, the durability of geopolymer foam concrete under needs to be investigated over a range of corrosive environments to enable application as a construction material. Therefore, determining the influence of these corrosive factors on the reinforcing steel in geopolymer foam concrete is the objective of the current research. A detailed multi-variable experiment..View full abstract
