Abstract     [Buy Article]
    This paper, proposes 20 models for predicting compressive strength of recycled aggregate concrete (RAC) containing silica fume by using gene expression programming (GEP). To construct the models, experimental data of 228 specimens produced from 61 different mixtures were collected from the literature. 80% of data sets were used in the training phase and the remained 20% in testing phase. Input variables were arranged in a format of seven input parameters including age of the specimen, cement content, water content, natural aggregates content, recycled aggregates content, silica fume content and amount of superplasticizer. The training and testing showed the models have good conformity with experimental results for predicting the compressive strength of recycled aggregate concrete containing silica fume.
