TL;DR: In this article, the authors discuss the different methods of curing of geopolymer concrete and figure out the best method of curing for different conditions of curing, and reveal that condition of curing has a good influence on the mechanical properties of polygonal concrete.
Abstract: Geopolymer concrete is a new approach of concrete production by exclusion of ordinary Portland cement entirely with pozzolanic material. Beside water, concrete is the largest consumed substances, which demand huge portion of Portland cement. During Portland cement manufacturing process, high emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) is produced which results in polluting the surrounding environment. Moreover, a lot of energy is expended during cement production. Based on manufacturing situations, geopolymer concrete displays different behaviors and attributes. This paper succinctly discusses the different methods of curing of geopolymer concrete and figures out the best method of curing. Experimental findings revealed that condition of curing has a good influence on the mechanical properties of geopolymer concrete. Conventionally, ambience temperature curing of geopolymer concrete result in low strength development at an early age, while higher temperature curing results in significant strength improvement. Similarly, extended curing time enhanced the geopolymerisation mechanism and achieved greater strength. However, longer duration of curing at an elevated temperature result in failure of the sample.
TL;DR: In this paper, the influence of applying green marketing mix elements (product, pricing, distribution and promotion) in Sudan on purchase intention was investigated, and a total of 417 questionnaires were distributed and 341 questionnaires returned.
Abstract: Article history: Received 10 May 2017 Received in revised form 10 December 2017 Accepted 20 December 2017 Green marketing concept emerged as a result of organizations' interest in environment. These originations realized that their survival and continuity lies in the coordination between its interest and the benefits of consumer and society. Green marketing includes a broad range of activities such as product modification, change in the production process, modification in advertising, and change in packaging. This paper aims to at investigating the influence of applying green marketing mix elements (product, pricing, distribution and promotion) in Sudan on purchase intention, The design of this research is descriptive and quantitative in nature. The target population for the study is the postgraduate (MBA) listing all universities in Khartoum state that offered graduate level courses were used as the sampling frame. A total of 417 questionnaires were distributed and 341 questionnaires were returned. Statistical analysis revealed that there is significant relationship between green marketing mix elements and consumer’s purchase intention. Future research can investigate relationships identified in this work, as well as test out mediating and moderating relationships. This study will provide better information as input to government policy makers, who responsible for business development, to encourage the manufacturing farm’s use of green marketing to benefit key stakeholder interests.
