Journal Article
Oyedele, L., Bello, S., Olaitan, O. K., Olonade, K., Olajumoke, A. M., Ajayi, A., …Bello, A. (2022). A deep learning approach to concrete water-cement ratio prediction. Results in Materials, 15(September 2022), Article 100300. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rinma.2022.100300

Concrete is a versatile construction material, but the water content can greatly influence its quality. However, using the trials and error method to determine the optimum water for the concrete mix results in poor quality concrete structures, which...
