AbstractThe prediction of concrete properties using computer modeling is becoming widely used, and many models utilize the concept of maturity. The original maturity concept was developed empirically from the study of the temperature effect on the compressive strength of normal-strength concrete. The use of the maturity concept for estimating the development of properties other than compressive strength has not yetbeen sufficiently validated with experimental data, especially for high-performance concrete.
