Abstract

The composite exciter and the CaO to Na2SO4 dosing ratios are known to have a strong impact on the mechanical strength of fly-ash concrete. In the present study a hybrid approach relying on experiments and a machine-learning technique has been used to tackle this problem. The tests have shown that the optimal admixture of CaO and Na2SO4 alone is 8%. The best 3D mechanical strength of fly-ash concrete is achieved at 8% of the compound activator; If the 28-day mechanical strength is considered, then, the best performances are obtained at 4% of the compound activator. Moreover, the 3D mechanical strength of fly-ash concrete is better when the dosing ratio of CaO to Na2SO4 in the compound activator is 1:1; the maximum strength of fly-ash concrete at 28-day can be achieved for a 1:1 ratio of CaO to Na2SO4 by considering a 4% compound activator. In this case, the compressive and flexural strengths are 260 MPa and 53.6 MPa, respectively; the mechanical strength of fly-ash concrete at 28-day can be improved by a 4:1 ratio of CaO to Na2SO4 by considering 8% and 12% compound excitants. It is shown that the predictions based on the aforementioned machine-learning approach are accurate and reliable.
