ASPDIN: An Expert System for the Design of Different Types of Concrete
Received Date: September 18, 2019; Published Date: September 25, 2019
Expert systems are designed to solve complex problems by reasoning with and about specialized knowledge like an expert. The design of concrete is a complex task that requires expert skills and knowledge. Even when given the proportions of the ingredients used, predicting the exact behavior of concrete is not a trivial task, even for experts, because other factors that are hard to control or foresee also exert some influence over the final properties of the material. This paper presents some of our attempts to build a new expert system that can design different types of concrete (hydraulic, bacterial, cellular, lightweight, high-strength, architectural, etc.) for different environments. The system also optimizes the use of additives and cement, which are the most expensive raw materials used in the manufacture of concrete..
