IntroductionTo be more sustainable in the road construction industry, the rock-based geopolymer concept should be applied with an aim to create a geopolymer-based road structural layer. A research initiative to use geopolymer as a road construction material was established at Chiang Mai University, Thailand. This research episode concentrated on the primary study of compaction characteristics of crushed rock geopolymer (CR-GP) in conjunction with its unconfined compressive strength and micro observations through SEM, XRF and XRD.
