Title: Applications of Digital Computers in the Quality Control of Concrete
Author(s): V. M. Malhotra
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 9-22
Abstract:Digital computers are used for control of concrete quality during its manufacture and for analysis and interpretation of concrete test results. Statistical parameters normally used for quality control are defined and their use is explained with the help of job control charts. The three case histories presented show: (1) the use of computers in establishing the degree of reliance of the strength of accelerated-cured test cylinders; (2) the multiple correlation analyses of 1176 compressive strength test results and several independent variables; and (3) a computer method for the trial and error fitting of a hyperbolic curve to compressive strength test results.
