This guide is intended for use by those resposible for entering data into a concrete materials property database. It is the first of a series of related documents that present recommended formats for use in computerization of concrete materials property data for enty into databases. The guide addresses the complex problem of distinguishing one concrete from another by providing a logical scheme for systematically organizing and subdividing material characteristics and parameters to create a unique concrete identifier for use in a database. The organization and structure presented in this guide provide an extensive framework for cross-referencing concrete materials property and processing data and for integrating the reporting recommendations contained in the other ACI Committee 126 guides are consistent with the principles laid down in the guides that have been prepared by ASTM Committee E-49 on Computerization of Material and Chemical Property Data.
