Abstract

Cork is a very interesting material in that it has a Poisson’s ratio of nearly zero. Harvested from the Cork Oak, this material also has an exceptionally low density. The goal of this design was to create a geopolymer composite with elevated strength and strain properties when compared to sodium geopolymer. Its properties and viability as a structural material were determined through four-point flexure testing according to ASTM standards, where flexure stress and flexure strain were measured and compared for different weight percent of the cork-sodium geopolymer composite. High solids loading samples recorded an average flexural strength of 2.5 MPa, and yielded flexural strain as high as 1.5%.
