Abstract

So far, the alkali activated concrete has primarily focused on the effect of source material properties and ratio of mix proportions on the compressive strength development. A little research has focused on developing a standard mix design procedure for alkali activated concrete for a range of compressive strength grades. This study developed a standard mix design procedure for alkali activated slag‒fly ash (low calcium, class F) blended concrete using two machine learning techniques, Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) and Multivariate Adaptive Regression Spline (MARS). The algorithm for the predictive model for concrete mix design was developed using MATLAB programming environment by considering the five key input parameters; water/solid ratio, alkaline activator/binder ratio, Na-Silicate /NaOH ratio, fly ash/slag ratio and NaOH molarity. The targeted compressive strengths ranging from 25–45 MPa (3.63–6.53 ksi) at 28 days were achieved with laboratory testing, using the proposed machine learning mix design procedure. Thus, this tool has the capability to provide a novel approach for the design of slag-fly ash blended alkali activated concrete grades matching to the requirements of in-situ field constructions.
