|Title:||A new approach to determination of compressive strength of fly ash concrete using fuzzy logic|
|Keywords:||Fuzzy logic;Fly ash;Concrete;Compressive strength|
|Abstract:||In this study, determination of effect of fly ash (FA) content on the compressive strength of concrete depending on water/cement ratio and concrete age was investigated by use of fuzzy logic (FL) approach. In the approach of modelling with FL, compressive strength values of various sample of concrete that produced by replacement of cement by F class of FA by ratio of 0 (control), 10%, 20% and 30% were used. Water/binder ratio of these concrete samples was varied between 0.27-0.60 in six different values. Experimental compressive strength values of the concrete specimens at 3, 7, 28, 90, 180 and 365 days compared with FL values obtained using the fuzzy sets. Optimum FA content and water/binder ratio for the best compressive strength for early age and hardened concrete can be obtained with FL.|
