Effect of Curing Temperature in the Alkali-Activated Brick Waste and Glass Powder mortar and Their Influence of Mechanical resistances


In this study, compressive strength values were measured at different curing times(7,14 and 28 days).The alkali-activation of the brick and glass powder body with potassium water glass having a silicate modulus of 3. Compressive strengths, flexural strength and specific fracture energy of the specimens stored at 40° C and 60° C are evaluated at 28-days. The study demonstrates that the storage temperature of specimens and the content of the alkaline solution have a significant influence on all mechanical properties of the studied materials.

Keywords: brick waste, glass powder, curing temperature, alkali-activated.
