||Computer methods in concrete materials technology -an overview
||This paper describes some examples of computer methods available in concrete materialstechnology for the precast industry.The most simple and widely used tools are programs or more often just spreadsheet tables forcalculation 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 targetedconcrete mix.Presently the most helpful computer methods are definitely quality control programs. These arenow also being presented in Windows versions. Next generation computer programs for precastplants would combine materials technology and process control.
