Abstract

This study proposes a new methodology with harmony search (HS) algorithm and neural networks (NNs) for concrete mix proportioning. The basic procedure for the methodology consists of four steps: (1) constructing a database of mix designs; (2) establishing appropriate models for strength and workability; (3) optimizing mix proportion using the modified HS algorithm; and (4) refining the mixture using NNs. The proposed methodology could be a useful decision-making tool for concrete mix design.
