Abstract:   (164 Views)
The use of supplementary cementing materials is gradually increasing due to technical, economical, and environmental benefits. Supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) are most commonly used in producing ready mixed concrete (RMC). A quantitative understanding of the efficiency of SCMs as a mineral admixture in concrete is essential for its effective utilisation. The performance and effective utilization of various SCMs can be possible to analyze, using the concept of the efficiency factor (k-value). This study describes the overview of various studies carried out on the efficiency factor of SCMs. Also, it is an effort directed towards a specific understanding of the efficiency of SCMs in concrete. Further it includes an overview of artificial neural network (ANN) for the prediction of the efficiency factor of SCMs in concrete. It is found that The model generated through ANN provided a tool to calculate efficiency factor (k) and capture the effects of different parameters such as, water-binder ratio; cement dosage; percentage replacement of SCMs; and curing age.
