Abstract
Water absorption in all in one aggregate concrete formation was monitored applying deterministic modeling approach. Several experts in the field has been applying empirical method through calibrating of experimental values, these has been developing water absorption parameters in various mix proportions to monitor strength development of concrete. But the application of deterministic concept has not been applied to monitor water absorption thus all in one aggregate concrete, the study applying these concept monitored water absorption at every twenty four hours and the conventional method of seven days interval, predictive values express the increase and decline rate of water absorption at various water cement ratios and curing age, these concept predicted different method expressing best fits of both concepts, the vacillation found in the study at different water cement ratios were base on the variations of mix proportions thus compaction level that determine the rate of concrete porosity in all in one aggregate concrete. The study is imperative because the application of these concept has been developed thus it can generate water absorption in hours and interval of days.
