The quality of ingredients and their quantity in the concrete mix decide the performance level. As the number of variables on which concrete performance depends increases, it is essential to identify those, to which the performance characteristics are sensitive. Efficacy of Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) in the visualisation of patterns in data, its utility in the identification of crucial variables, prediction of performance levels, and generation of performance indices have been discussed and illustrated.
