Abstract
This paper express a new application of determining compressive strength of concrete different from the conventional ways using experimental analysis through calibrations and development of empirical models techniques. Although previous concepts has been generating results to monitor the compressive strength of concrete, but the purpose of these study is to develop another method of compressive strength different from experimental and empirical solution, thus express the advantage of these application compared to other conventional method in concrete strength development. The application of deterministic model in the development of locally occurring 3/8 gravel aggregate concrete at its natural has definitely generated it advantage; it has been observed that these two different materials selected at different mix proportion has also not been thorough monitored applying this type of modeling techniques. These are to determine its compressive strength using this type of predictive model. These concept were used to predict the compressive strength of locally occurring 3/8 gravel concrete at different water cement ratios and curing age, simulating these model generated predictive values that has expressed the behaviour of strength development from different water cement ratios and curing age, the graphical representations shows there various rates of compressive strength at different mix proportions and age, the strength development from these local materials has been expressed through the developed model, some effects that has generated some decline in compressive strength in some mix proportions were also observed, these influences are from variation of concrete porosity and permeability, these are reflected on the fluctuation of compressive strength at different figures expressed through graphical representation, the study is imperative because the developed model can be applied to monitor the behaviour of strength development of all in one aggregates in natural state including selective material that form other normal granite aggregate concrete, predicting there various compressive strength at different ages including every twenty four hour thus interval of seven days to ninety days, these are new concept that can be applied to monitor compressive strength of concrete.
