The feasibility of producing “just add water” alkali-activated self-consolidated (AASCC) mixtures using multi-powder activators and various cement-less binder combinations was evaluated in this study. During this study, fresh properties for mortar mixtures were evaluated by conducting the mini-slump flow test. Moreover, the relative performance of activated mortars and potential interactions among materials used in the mixtures was examined using the isothermal calorimeter. The performance of the hardened mortar mixtures was evaluated after 3, 7 and 28 days by conducting compressive strength tests. Results indicated an increase in the mechanical properties was observed while increasing the dry-powder activator ratio and source material nature for ground and non-ground mixtures.
