Abstract

The development and the main features of a knowledge-based expert system for modelling the requirements of durable concrete in sulfate exposure, called the Sulfate-Resistant Concrete Advisor (SRCA), are described. The system was developed to help improve the quality of concrete exposed to sulfate environment by minimizing mistakes and deficiencies in selecting concrete constituents. Using Kappa-PC expert system shell, an object-oriented model was developed where the rule-based reasoning and other decision processes operate on or across objects. The knowledge and experience were acquired from various textual sources and human experts. The system is very useful for civil engineering students as well as practicing engineers.
