Abstract

The computational materials science of concrete has developed rapidly in the last 15 years. This development has been strongly tied to the even more rapid advances in computer processor speed and memory during this same time, without which progress in the computational materials science of complicated materials such as concrete would not have been possible. As the increase in computer power continues unabated, further development in the computational materials science of concrete may be constrained by a lack of trained researchers. In this presentation, we will briefly review the past and present state of this field, and make some projections as to what will happen in the next decade or so, especially if more people become trained and involved.
