Computer methods in concrete materials technology - an overview

Abstract: This paper describes some examples of computer methods available in concrete materials technology for the precast industry. The most simple and widely used tools are programs or more often just spreadsheet tables for calculation of combined grading curves and batch quantities of available aggregates. Packing programs are used to optimize aggregate combination. Mix simulation and mix design programs are more advanced basic tools in finding the targeted concrete mix. Presently the most helpful computer methods are definitely quality control programs. These are now also being presented in Windows versions. Next generation computer programs for precast plants would combine materials technology and process control.
