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
