Abstract:
Describes an expert system with a knowledge base consisting of freeze-thaw, sulfate, alkali-aggregate, and corrosion aspects of concrete durability. The system was developed on a microcomputer using an expert-system shell facility. This paper discusses knowledge acquisition, knowledge representation, issues relating to the maintenance of expert systems, and recommendations for field implementations.
