Abstract

In this study a full factorial design (FFD) based desirability function approach (DFA) was used to the modeling of determined quality criteria of C 40/50 (C50). A FFD based DFA was also applied to determine optimal mixture proportions of C50. The mixture proportion modeled by using FFD was determined as the function of variables such as water to binder materials ratio, coarse aggregate (II) to total aggregate ratio, the percentage of superplasticizer content and fly ash amount. The properties of C50 were identified as that the slump flow and 28th day compressive strength. The model results were tested with experimental runs. The results showed that the determined regression meta-models were useful for prediction of properties of C50 with the mixture parameters. The results also showed that the FFD based DFA are effective in solving the mixture proportions optimization problem.
