An experimental investigation is carried out to examine the behaviour of alccofine based geopolymer concrete (GPC) deep beams compared with conventional concrete (CC) deep beams with varying reinforcement ratios (0.4% & 0.9%) under static loading conditions. The combination of low calcium fly ash-based GPC with the optimum amount of alccofine was utilized. Various criteria are taken into accounts, such as load-bearing capacity, deflection, energy absorption, and modes of failure were determined and the results were discussed in detail for twelve numbers of deep beams. From the test findings, it is revealed that GPC deep beams have enhanced performance than CC.
